First, second-round picks won't play vs. Bears

Both linebacker T.J. Watt and offensive lineman Marcus Gilbert won't play for the Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday against the Bears. 

Per NBC Sports, "Watt hurt his groin in last Sunday’s victory over the Vikings, but didn’t practice on Thursday or Friday before being ruled out by the team. Watt was replaced by Anthony Chickillo last week. Chickillo started in place of Bud Dupree in the opener, although there’s also a chance that his absence could open the door for James Harrison to get some playing time."

The Steelers will also be without right tackle Marcus Gilbert, who missed practice all week because of a hamstring injury and an illness. Gilbert will likely be replaced by Chris Hubbard, who stepped in for both Gilbert and left tackle Alejandro Villanueva at points in last Sunday’s win.

Defensive end Stephon Tuitt is questionable to play. Tuitt hurt his biceps in Week One and didn’t play last week.
