The Pittsburgh Steelers have activated All-Pro safety Minkah Fitzpatrick from the COVID-19 reserve list, the team announced Thursday.

Fitzpatrick will now be eligible to play in Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

The fourth-year safety was placed on the COVID-19 reserve list on Nov. 15 and missed the Steelers' 41-37 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 11.

Fitzpatrick has recorded 64 combined tackles and one forced fumble in the nine games this season.
