Texans' J.J. Watt: Ruled out for remainder of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watt (back) will miss the remainder of this season after having surgery Thursday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Watt's status was confirmed by coach Bill O'Brien, eliminating any outside chance that he'll return this year. As a result, Watt's 2016 season will end with eight tackles, 1.5 sacks and one fumble recovery in just three games played. The three-time Defensive Player of the Year will now focus on rehabbing his back once again, leaving Devon Still and Antonio Smith to fill expanded roles in his absence.

Texans' J.J. Watt: Underwent surgery Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Watt underwent back surgery Thursday, and is expected to be out the remainder of the season, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The reigning Defensive Player of the Year was thought to have had a slim chance of returning this season, but that appears to be ruled out following surgery. He recorded 1.5 sacks and eight tackles through the first three weeks of the season. Devon Still and and Antonio Smith figure to have big shoes to fill at defensive end in Watt's absence.

Texans' J.J. Watt: Potentially done for remainder of season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Watt (back) is likely out for the remainder of the season, leaving his odds of returning from IR as "slim."

While there are no long-term concerns with the injury, the chances we see Watt take the field again this season seem highly unlikely. The reigning Defensive Player of the Year recorded eight tackles and 1.5 sacks in the first three weeks of the season before aggravating his back injury. Watt's absence leaves an enormous hole in the Texans defense, which is expected to be filled by Devon Still and the newly signed Antonio Smith.

Texans' J.J. Watt: Placed on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans placed Watt (back) on injured reserve Wednesday.

It was announced Tuesday that Watt was headed to injured reserve after aggravating his back injury, and the Texans officially made that move Wednesday morning. Watt will be sidelined at least eight weeks and is not necessarily done for the season, but whether or not he returns before the year is over depends on the success of his recovery. Devon Still and Antonio Smith will be counted on to fill in at right defensive end in Watt's place.

Texans' J.J. Watt: Expects to be placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Watt (back) expects to be placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.

Watt aggravated a previous back injury during Thursday's outing versus the Patriots and is now slated to be sidelined indefinitely. However, even if he's placed on injured reserve, there's still a chance he'll be able to return much later in the season, so it doesn't necessarily rule him out for the rest of the year. With that said, the Texans are expected to re-sign fellow defensive end Antonio Smith to take Watt's spot on the roster, which should provide them a familiar face on the defensive line for some much-needed additional depth.
