    07/22/16DLJ.J. WattBackQUESTIONABLEWatt (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.

    07/11/16DBLonnie BallentineKneePROBABLEBallentine (knee) expects to be ready for training camp, The Houston Chronicle reports.

    Mr. Irrelevant of the 2014 NFL Draft, Ballentine suffered tears to both his MCL and PCL after dislocating his left knee in October of 2015. He will be over 10 months removed from the injury when training camp opens, though, and will be competing for a role on special teams and as a depth linebacker.

    07/11/16DBCharles JamesFootPROBABLEJames (foot) will be ready for the start of training camp, the Texans' official site reports.

    James reportedly played through a stress fracture in his foot for over a month before suffering a complete fracture and landing on injured reserve in December. Subsequently, he missed the near-entirety of Houston's offseason program, but hasn't reported any setbacks and will be ready for the start of training camp.

    05/17/16RBArian FosterAchillesQUESTIONABLEThe Dolphins and Foster (Achilles) agreed to a contract Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    After getting a baseline on Foster's recovery from a torn Achilles in late March, the Dolphins' medical staff must have been impressed enough with his recovery on his second go-around Monday to give the front office the thumb's up. Considering his age (30 next month) and the fact he's nine months removed from the devastating injury, he'll more than likely ease into training camp. However, his competition includes two unproven products -- second-year back Jay Ajayi and rookie Kenyan Drake (hamstring) -- which provides a path to relevance for Foster. On the other hand, the final stages of Foster's rehab will ultimately dictate when he'll be able to make an impact.

    07/11/16LBPernell McPheeKneePROBABLEMcPhee (knee) will miss this week's minicamp, and head coach John Fox was noncommittal as to whether McPhee will be ready for training camp in July, reports Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune.

    McPhee had arthroscopic surgery on his knee shortly after the 2015 season, and was not expected to be at full speed until training camp, so this isn't shocking news. However, having the outside linebacker at full strength for the regular season will be vital to the Bears' pass rush, as McPhee recorded five sacks in the first seven games of 2015 before being slowed down by the knee injury.

    07/11/16DLCornelius WashingtonQuadricepsPROBABLEA quad injury caused the Bears to place defensive lineman Cornelius Washington on injured reserve, the team announced Monday. With an open roster spot, the team re-signed linebacker Sam Acho.
    07/11/16WRMarquess WilsonFootDOUBTFULWilson, who re-fractured his left foot Tuesday, is out indefinitely.

    Per the report, Wilson -- who missed the last five games of the 2015 season after breaking the same foot -- will undergo surgery this coming Monday and is thus a candidate to open the season on the PUP list. With Wilson ailing, look for Eddie Royal, Josh Bellamy and Marc Mariani, as well as Cameron Meredith, Daniel Braverman and Deonte Thompson to jostle for slotting on the Bears' wideout depth chart behind top options Alshon Jeffery and Kevin White.
