  • Texans' J.J. Watt: May not be ready for OTAs
    By RotoWire Staff

    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.

  • Texans' J.J. Watt: Walking on treadmill
    By RotoWire Staff

    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.

  • Texans' J.J. Watt: Faces lengthy rehab
    By RotoWire Staff

    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.

  • Watt (lower leg) is expected to undergo season-ending surgery Monday to repair a tibial plateau fracture in his left leg, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The Texans likely won't issue a timetable for Watt's recovery until after the procedure is completed, but given the severe nature of the injury, it's possible the star defensive end could be sidelined heading into OTAs next spring, if not longer. The season-ending injury is the second in as many years for Watt, who appeared in only three games in 2016 before requiring back surgery last September. Coming off two major operations, it's uncertain if Watt will ever be able to return to the level of peak performance that previously earned him three NFL Defensive Player of the Year awards. As for the rest of this season, the absences of Watt and Whitney Mercilus (ankle), who was also injured in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs and will require season-ending surgery, significantly weakens the Texans' pass rush and may prove impossible for the team to replace.

  • Texans' J.J. Watt: Needs season-ending surgery
    By RotoWire Staff

    Watt needs season-ending surgery to repair the tibial plateau fracture in his left leg he suffered during Sunday's game against the Chiefs, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports. Watt was ruled out for the season only two hours after suffering the injury. The quick decision is a bad sign, suggesting his fracture is significant and may also be accompanied by ligament damage. Watt has played just eight games since the end of the 2015 season, notching 1.5 sacks and 23 tackles over that stretch. He has a long history of playing through injuries, but they've finally caught up to him the past two seasons.
