Christian Watson is available for the Green Bay Packers' matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 10. Watson suffered a back injury in the fourth quarter of the Packers' win over the Los Angeles Rams, but he has been cleared to play after practicing in full all week.
Running back Aaron Jones had his biggest workload of the season last week. The good news is he is ready to go. Last week's game didn't aggravate his hamstring issue.
The Packers didn't rule out any players earlier in the week, but they did list cornerback Jaire Alexander and inside linebacker Quay Walker as doubtful to play against the Steelers. Green Bay will have to find a way to win without two key defensive starters on Sunday.
Pittsburgh is relatively healthy in Week 10, although it has ruled out three-time first-team All-Pro safety Mikah Fitzpatrick and former Packers defensive lineman Montravius Adams.

The Packers picked up a much-needed win over the Rams last week, but they need to back it up with another good performance against the Steelers. Green Bay fell behind in the wild-card race, having lost four games in a row. Consecutive wins would help get the Packers back on track.
But it won't be easy. The Packers' last victory in Pittsburgh was 53 years ago. Sunday would be a good time to end that losing run.
Both teams are without key players on defense, but the Steelers do have superstar pass rusher T.J. Watt. The Packers did a good job of preventing Aaron Donald from taking over the game last week, but they weren't able to do the same against the Las Vegas Raiders' Maxx Crosby earlier in the year. The Packers can't allow Watt to dominate.
