T.J. Watt shared some news with Pittsburgh Steelers fans in Terminator fashion.

The star pass rusher tweeted out a GIF of the famous “I’ll be back” scene on Tuesday, suggesting a return at some point in the 2022 season.

When he will be back is another question that remains to be answered. However, judging by Mike Tomlin’s press conference earlier on Tuesday, there’s a lot of optimism in the Steelers building right now.

The head coach confirmed the Steelers are looking at this as a non-worst case scenario situation and they haven’t ruled out any possibility other than the fact that Watt will miss the team’s Week 2 game versus the New England Patriots.

In the meantime, T.J. Watt confirming his return on Twitter comes alongside a timetable by Ian Rapoport from NFL Network. According to the reporter, the pass rusher didn’t tear the tendon even though he suffered a torn pec muscle.

As such, Watt could be in for around six weeks of rehab. That means no surgery for the Steelers superstar.

Hurry on back, T.J.! You make the NFL a better league.
