Texans' J.J. Watt: Heads to IR

Watt (lower leg) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Watt was destined for IR after it was announced he would sit out the rest of the season after going under the knife Monday. The three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year will finish his second straight season on IR, and it's difficult to project what kind of player he'll be once he returns from another lengthy rehab. The Texans signed veteran defensive end Kendall Langford to take Watt's spot on the 53-man roster.
