According to a report by Nick Scurfield on HoustonTexans.com, After JJ Watts’ elbow injury this morning, Coach Gary Kubiak will have Watt will be ready for the season opener against Miami, “There’s been some scares with some key guys on our football team,” Kubiak said. “Hopefully, we work through some of that and be fortunate. We’ve got a long way to go between now and the time we play. Right now, I don’t have any doubt that Andre’s going to be there on opening day and Duane Brown’s going to be there on opening day and J.J.’s going to be, in my mind, he’s going to be there on opening day. That’s what’s most important.”
Kubiak went on to state that Watt will be evaluated as soon as possible “J.J.’s got elbow issue that we’ve obviously got to evaluate here at lunch time and see what happens,” Kubiak said. “I’m trying to smile. I’m concerned until we go find out what’s going on. But you know, I don’t want to say nothing. It’s his elbow, we’re gonna take a look at it. Hopefully, everything will be OK.”
Should Watt miss any time, defensive end Tim Jamison is most likely to practice as a starter. Jamison, went undrafted out of Michigan in 2009, played in all 16 games last season for the Texans, he had 19 tackles, two sacks and one forced fumble.
