It looks like J.J. Watt’s injured finger isn’t going to get better as the Houston Texans’ season rolls on.
Houston Texans’ star defensive lineman J.J. Watt suffered a a dislocated finger during their week one loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Unfortunately Watt re-injured his finger against the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday night.
Don’t get queasy, but Watt said after Thursday’s win that he had to check and make sure his finger was still attached during the game.
"“It was really great until the last three plays, and then I was literally adjusting it and feeling it as I was running around and trying to chase that guy on the last play,” Watt said. “I’m honestly kind of scared to take my glove off. I honestly don’t know what it looks like.”"
I can’t imagine that a finger injury will cause Watt to miss any time going forward, but it sounds like he’ll likely have to play this season with only nine functioning fingers.
Dan Graziano of ESPN was a guest on SportsCenter and said that Watt’s injured finger will likely linger for the entire season. Which isn’t a surprise.
Texans looking for linebacker help.
The Texans will be working out free agent linebacker Audie Cole this coming Monday.
With Brian Cushing out for another nine games due to his PED suspension, the Texans need to add some depth at linebacker.
The 28 year-old Cole was a seventh round pick of the Minnesota Vikings in 2012 out of NC State.
