    Texans' J.J. Watt: Calls himself healthy

    J.J. Watt (knee) termed himself healthy as the Houston Texans' offseason program kicks off, Drew Dougherty of the team's official site reports. "I get to work on my craft, work in the weight room," Watt told Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. "Last two years hoping to get back to play and hoping to play at a decent level."After a pair of injury-plagued years, Watt bounced back in 2018 to something resembling his peak from earlier this decade. Overall, he posted his fourth-most sacks (16) in a given campaign while accumulating 61 tackles and a career-best seven forced fumbles in 16 games. Watt underwent a minor procedure on his knee following the Texans' wild-card loss to the Colts, but his offseason otherwise has been preparation-based rather than focused on rehab.

    Texans' J.J. Watt: Makes impact both good, bad

    J.J. Watt had two tackles, a quarterback hit and two passes defensed in Saturday's 21-7 wild-card round loss to the Colts.Watt deflected a couple of Andrew Luck passes, one of which turned into an interception inside Houston's own red zone, but was not the disruptive force we've seen much of the season. His offside penalty on the Colts' opening possession helped extend a drive that turned into a touchdown. The penalty was emblematic of Houston's performance in a game in which they made unforced errors and were utterly dominated. The frustration of the playoff loss aside, this was a nice bounceback season for Watt, who recorded 16 sacks and played a full season for the first time since 2015. He'll be 30 years old when the 2019 season kicks off and shows no signs of slowing down.

    Texans' J.J. Watt: Absent from injury report

    J.J. Watt (elbow) doesn't sport an injury designation for Saturday's wild-card game against the Colts.The injuries that limited Watt in practice Wednesday were not believed to be serious, so it shouldn't come as a shock that he will suit up for the wild-card game. The star defensive end has enjoyed a resurgent season after a pair of injury-riddled campaigns, racking up 16.0 sacks and 47 tackles over a full regular season. The Colts have allowed just seven sacks all season -- tied with the Saints for the cleanest sheet in the league -- so Watt and the Houston Texans defense will have their work cut out for them getting to Andrew Luck. Watt, however, has accounted for three of those sacks in the two previous games against the Colts.
