Injuries, miscues pile up for Steelers in loss to Raiders

PITTSBURGH (AP) One half, T.J. Watt was wrecking the Las Vegas Raiders' game plan.

The next the Pittsburgh Steelers star linebacker was watching from the sideline in sweatpants dealing with a groin injury as the Raiders surged to a 26-17 victory that sapped any momentum Pittsburgh gained from a season-opening triumph in Buffalo.

Watt was hardly the only Steeler rendered mere spectator as their record fell to 1-1. Veteran cornerback Joe Haden and inside linebacker Devin Bush were inactive after groin injuries popped up during practice on Friday.
