J.J. Watt feels 'fantastic'

Houston Texans pass rusher J.J. Watt (back) told the media he feels "fantastic" at a charity softball game on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Watt only played in three games in 2016 due to an in-season surgery to repair a lingering back injury. Although he will miss OTAs, he has not suffered a setback this offseason and is fully on track in his recovery. Expect Watt, 28, to be ready for the start of training camp in late-July.

J.J. Watt feeling 'good'

Houston Texans pass rusher J.J. Watt (back) told the media he's feeling "really good" in his recovery from back surgery. "My body feels really good," Watt said Monday. "I'm looking forward to getting back to playing football. I can't wait"

Fantasy Impact

Watt appears to be on track in his recovery from back surgery he underwent last season. Although his status for Houston's offseason workouts is unknown, he is fully expected to be back on the field at the start of training camp in July.

J.J. Watt to be ready for OTAs

Houston Texans pass rusher J.J. Watt (back) told the media he is "fully cleared" for football activities and that he "sees no reason why he won't be ready for OTAs."

Fantasy Impact

Watt only appeared in three games in 2016, missing 13 of which due to a back injury. He underwent surgery to repair a herniated disc in September, which ultimately ended his season despite the hopes of the team, and Watt, that he would be available to return at some point during the year. Instead, he'll rehab, train and prepare to be fully ready for the 2017 campaign. His first stop, OTAs, at which he is expected to be a full participant. A healthy Watt will only improve a Texans defense that finished 2016 ranked No. 1 in total defense.
