CINCINNATI (KDKA) — Derek Watt was helped off the field following a scary collision during Monday’s loss to the Bengals.

Watt collided head-first with the knee of Cincinnati’s Alex Erickson during punt coverage the first quarter. He was taken to the sideline before going to the locker room. He did not return.

After the game, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Watt has a concussion.

After the game, Watt said he is “going to be ok.”

“Just wanted to send a quick message to say thank you to everyone for the well wishes and let you know that I’m going to be ok,” he tweeted.

Watt’s brother, J.J Watt, took to Twitter earlier in the night.

“Worst feeling you can ever have watching a football game. Sounds like he’s going to be alright thankfully. Thank you for all the thoughts & concerns.”
