I am Heyward has an itchy spot on his body, but he knows he needs to wait for it to cure or else it will grow worse.
He is itching to get back into the game he loves since he doesn't like watching from the sidelines.
However, until he is well enough to return to the field and support his team, that is all he can do.
One of the three blows the Pittsburgh Steelers suffered in Week 1 was Heyward's torn groin.
The 49ers of San Francisco dominated them, and Diontae Johnson—another excellent player—sustained a hamstring injury that would prevent him.
Johnson is anticipated to make a comeback when the Steelers visit Los Angeles to play the Rams after their Week 6 bye.
Heyward is not as fortunate. Surgery was necessary for his injuries, and the recovery might take up to eight weeks.
If all goes according to plan, he may return for the Steelers' home game against the Green Bay Packers on November 12.
