Texans' J.J. Watt: Got better as game progressed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watt had three tackles and two quarterback hits in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Patriots in Week 1.

Watt was initially quiet, but started getting into the backfield more often in the second half. While he didn't get credit for a sack, Watt created the pressure that forced New England quarterback Tom Brady into the waiting arms of D.J. Reader. It was a good effort by Watt, who was limited to eight games played over the last two seasons by back and leg injuries.

Texans' J.J. Watt: May not be limited Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Romeo Crenel is optimistic that Watt will not be limited in Sunday's season-opener against the Patriots, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.

"Right now he's been doing OK in practice," Crennel said, "so he should be there." Watt was heavily limited throughout the preseason, playing only three defensive series in one game against the Rams. While it's hard to say whether Watt will ever have the same impact as during his historically dominant 2012-2015 stretch, the defensive end at least looks likely to start against New England on Sunday.

Texans' J.J. Watt: Active during joint practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watt made several impact plays during Wednesday's joint practice session with the 49ers, John Harris of the Texans' official site reports.

Watt made plays from both the right and left sides of the line, forcing San Francisco quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo into hurried and errant throws, or to adjust his delivery, or to throw an interception. The defensive end said earlier in the week that he will be ready to go Week 1 against the Patriots and backed up those words with his actions Wednesday.

Texans' J.J. Watt: No doubt about Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watt reiterated that he has no doubt he will play Week 1 against New England, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

After missing 24 games the past two years, Watt was cleared to practice without any restrictions at the beginning of training camp. It's hard to say if he'll ever regain his historically dominant form of 2012-15, but there doesn't seem to be any question about his availability. Watt hopes to play in at least one preseason game as a tune-up before Week 1.

Texans' J.J. Watt: Hopes to play in at least one preseason contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watt (leg) is hopeful to play in at least one preseason game, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Watt, who avoided beginning training camp on the PUP list and has been cleared for full activity in practice, hopes to test out his surgically repaired leg in a game situation at some point during the preseason. He's not expected to participate in the Texans' preseason opener against the Chiefs on Thursday, but wants Houston to allow him to get a few live reps in the coming weeks. The team has proceeded cautiously with their star defensive end in past years, as the 29-year-old has dealt with several serious injuries en route to playing in just eight tilts throughout the past two seasons.
