Texans' J.J. Watt: Cleared for action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watt (back) passed a team-mandated 'Return to Play' protocol and has been participating in OTAs without any physical limitations, Scout.com's Patrick Starr reports.

Watt originally underwent back surgery last July but perhaps rushed back too soon considering he made it just three weeks into the 2016 season before aggravating the injury. In turn, he needed a second surgical procedure in September that effectively shut him down for the remainder of the year. Relative to the first operation, Watt has been afforded plenty of time to recover this time around and progressed in his rehab without any known setbacks. As it stands, the Texans reportedly have no plans to limit his snaps in 2017 and are preparing for the three-time Defensive Player of the Year to take on his usual three-down role.

Texans' J.J. Watt: Positive as workouts begin
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watt (back) said his body feels "really good" as the Texans began their offseason workout program Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Watt was limited to just three games last season after requiring two back operations in the span of six months, but the defensive behemoth has been cleared for all physical activities since the beginning of February, so rejoining his teammates for the Texans' offseason program came as expected Monday. According to Watt, he now has a better understanding of how to approach his rehab and training regime to avoid overexerting himself, and believes increased caution in that regard with help him stay fresh ahead of this season. Considering his MVP pedigree, the Texans will be elated to have Watt back and focused on remaining healthy, and will use their offseason program to get him prepared for a full return to football activities.

Texans' J.J. Watt: Still on track for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watt (back) remains on track for Week 1 and is expected to participate in OTAs in some capacity, The Houston Chronicle reports.

Rehabbing from his second back surgery in a span of six months, Watt seems to be on schedule or even a little bit ahead. He said at the Super Bowl that he'd already been cleared to resume working out, which should give him plenty of time to reach full strength for training camp. Any degree of participation in the offseason program would be a positive sign.

Texans' J.J. Watt: Expects to be ready for OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watt (back) is recovering well from back surgery and expects to participate in OTAs, James Palmer of NFL Network reports

Watt spent almost the entire 2016 season on injured reserve due to his back injury but he appears to be nearing a return. Head coach Bill O'Brien said that OTAs are different for lineman, and that the real test for Watt would be training camp, James Palmer of ESPN reports. Watt is expected to be a full go for the start of the 2017 season.

Texans' J.J. Watt: Says he's fully cleared for football activities
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Watt (back) said Wednesday that he's been fully cleared for football activities and expects to be ready for the start of OTAs, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

Watt underwent season-ending back surgery in September, limiting him to just three appearances before he was placed on IR. In his stead, former No. 1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney stepped up to earn a Pro Bowl nomination, and the return of Watt in 2017 could give the Texans one of the more fearsome pass-rushing combinations in the league. Assuming Watt makes it through offseason activities and training camp as expected, he'll still likely project as a top-flight IDP option along the defensive line.
