Watt (leg) resumed running in mid-January and remains on track to return in time for training camp, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports. Watt underwent surgery in October to repair a tibial plateau fracture in his left leg and still has significant work to do in the recovery process. The 28-year-old could return for Organized Team Activities this spring if everything goes smoothly, but the Texans are likely to proceed with extreme caution to manage the return of their franchise defensive lineman.
Watt (leg) is on track for training camp and expects to start running soon, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. It remains uncertain if Watt will return in time for April's organized team activities, but the four-time All-Pro defensive end at least sounds like he'll be fully recovered weeks ahead of the season opener.
Watt (lower leg) said Friday that he'll be ready to play next season, but isn't certain if he'll be on the field for the start of Organized Team Activities in the spring, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports. Watt, who underwent surgery in October to repair a tibial plateau fracture in his left leg, only recently started walking without the aid of crutches, so he's not far along in the recovery process to forecast his return to practice. With Watt having been limited to a combined eight games over the last two years after sustaining a pair of season-ending injuries, it's fair to wonder if the three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year will ever return to peak form again.
Watt (leg) walked on a treadmill for the first time since undergoing surgery in October to repair a tibial fracture, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Watt posted a video of himself on the treadmill on his Snapchat account and included a caption with the words "Big day" and "first steps." The three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year faces a full offseason of rehab and hopes to be ready to take part in Organized Team Activities in May.
Watt will need 6-to-9 months of recovery after undergoing surgery earlier this week to repair a tibial fracture in his left leg, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Based on that timeline, Watt, who was officially moved to injured reserve Wednesday, could possibly be ready for Organized Team Activities next May, but the Texans aren't expected to push the three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year.
