Draft Scout *J.J. Watt News
01/18/18 - DE J.J. Watt took a huge step forward in his rehab from a broken leg on Thursday. Watt posted a video on Twitter of him running on a treadmill, flashing two thumbs up at the end. It was his first time running since fracturing the tibial plateau in his left leg in Week 5 of the season. "BIGGGG DAYYY!!!! Progress!!!!!" Watt wrote in a caption accompanying the video. The 6-foot-6, 290-pound Watt has had each of his last two seasons derailed by injury, appearing in only eight of Houston's 32 games. "I'm great. I'm doing really well, very pleased with the progress," Watt told the Texans' official website.

Watt initially remained on his knees before rolling over on his back and displaying obvious discomfort. He was helped off the field, unable to put pressure on his left leg. Watt was later carted to the locker room and declared out.

09/13/17 - DE J.J. Watt can take comfort in some small things after an ugly loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars to open the season. For instance, the three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year's dislocated finger remains intact along with his sense of humor.
"Better, it's inside my body," Watt said. "That's all that matters. It's still attached."
Watt was limited to one tackle and one quarterback pressure in his first game back since undergoing a pair of back surgeries last season. Watt can't wait for the Texans' next game Thursday night at Paul Brown Stadium.
"We're looking forward to going out there and playing a game," Watt said. "You just want to get back out there and put a good performance together so you can get this taste out of your mouth."
