  • Watt (back) will need at least eight weeks before he is able to return to the field following back surgery Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Watt's surgery indeed did turn out to be the result of a herniated disk suffered in 2015-16. Initial reports stated that Watt would take six-to-eight weeks to recover enough to be able to suit up for the Texans, but now there are reports that recovery would take eight weeks minimum. That would put Watt's return date at Sept. 15, four days too late for Houston's season opener against the Bears. Other reports are claiming that rehabilitation could take up to 10 weeks. In any case, the super-star defensive end is in serious danger of missing his first ever NFL game.

  • Watt (groin) underwent back surgery Thursday and will start training camp on the physically unable to perform list, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports. Watt dealt with a herniated disk in his back for some time last season among other injuries. The operation may have been executed because of that disk, but conclusive reasoning for the surgery is not yet known at this point. The Texans expect him to be ready for the season opener Sept. 11 against the Bears in Houston based on the fact that he has never missed an NFL game in his career regardless of injury. The 6-5 Wisconsin product won Defensive Player of the Year honors in 2015-16, racking up 76 combined tackles and a league-leading 17.5 sacks.

  • Texans' J.J. Watt: Returns to practice Monday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Watt (groin) returned to the practice field on Monday after recovery from offseason surgery kept him sidelined for previous OTAs, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Watt remains less than 100% for the time being as his repaired core muscles continue to heal, but the fact that he was able to workout with the team Monday leaves a sense of optimism that he'll be a full participant throughout training camp later in the summer. At this rate he should be back to full health well before the arrival of Week 1 when the Texans begin the season against the Bears.

  • Texans' J.J. Watt: Remains sidelined
    By RotoWire Staff

    Watt (groin) remains sidelined at OTAs, the Houston Chronicle reports. "I feel really good," he said Tuesday. "As soon as I'm allowed, I'll be out there. You guys know me well enough now to know that it's not up to me. I think it will be soon." The Texans are exercising caution as Watt proceeds through the latter stages of his recovery from offseason surgery to repair a number of torn core muscles. Tuesday marked just the fourth OTA of the team's offseason program, which will be followed up by mandatory minicamp from June 14-16. There's always the potential that the star pass rusher doesn't take the field until training camp, but considering his comments, he should be his usual force of nature once Week 1 arrives.

  • Texans' J.J. Watt: Sits out Monday's OTA
    By RotoWire Staff

    Watt (groin) did not participate in Monday's opening day of OTAs, the Houston Chronicle reports. Watt is coming off surgery to repair several damaged core muscles, and although last month he stated he was approaching 100 percent health, the Texans are understandably erring on the safe side with their defensive behemoth. While Watt didn't participate in team drills Monday, he did go through individual work on the sideline as the Texans started OTAs, and should be good to go once needed later this summer.
