Steelers’ Minkah Fitzpatrick Out Multiple Weeks Following Appendectomy



Minkah Fitzpatrick

The Pittsburgh Steelers celebrated the news that superstar linebacker TJ Watt would be making his return to the team, but it was bittersweet news as they learned that safety Minkah Fitzpatrick will be out of action.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Pro Bowl safety will miss multiple weeks when he was forced to undergo an appendectomy after their walk-through practice Saturday. Fitzpatrick did not feel well at practice and tests indicated that an appendectomy was needed immediately.

The Steelers are hopefull that Fitzpatrick can make it back as quickly as possible, but an appendectomy typically results in a multiweek absence.
