Brigitte is still being tested on Overwatch's PTR with several nerfs being implemented for the newest hero along with one slight buff.

It's not unusual for heroes to see multiple balance changes on the PTR before going live for everyone, though Brigitte's just happen to consist of more nerfs than buffs.
