(NFL) – The MRI on T.J. Watt‘s hip and knee injuries provided positive news for the Pittsburgh Steelers pass rusher.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday on NFL NOW that there is little, if any, structural damage to Watt’s hip and knee, per a source informed of the situation.

Rapoport added that Watt is sore, and if there were a game today, he wouldn’t be able to play. But the good news from the tests suggests Watt might be able to play this week against the Los Angeles Chargers, and if he has to miss a game, the absence should be brief — as little as one game.

There will be disruption

(Yahoo!) – Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg told Yahoo Finance Live supply chain bottlenecks at the country’s major ports will likely persist for the foreseeable future.

“We are definitely seeing some immediate impacts of the immediate steps that we have taken, but the honest answer I can give you, as long as the pandemic continues, there will be disruptions,” Buttigieg explained.

The supply chain bottlenecks triggered by the pandemic continue to have multiple effects on the U.S. economy.

For one is the straight consumer angle, where shoppers may be unable to find what they want when headed to a retailer. That could become even more acute for the approaching holiday shopping season. But the other aspect is the inflationary aftermath on shoppers as companies raise prices to offset their higher costs — notably for shipping.

This spider broke the web.

(CNN) – A massive funnel-web spider with fangs capable of piercing human fingernails has been donated to an antivenom program in Australia, sparking an appeal for its anonymous donor to come forward.

Nicknamed “Megaspider,” the arachnid measures 8 centimeters (about 3 inches) foot to foot, with fangs 2 centimeters (about 0.8 inches) long, the Australian Reptile Park said in a statement Friday. With a body measuring 5 centimeters (1.9 inches), it’s the largest funnel-web spider the park has ever seen, it added.
