J.J. Watt held out of Thursday’s practice
Could star defensive lineman J.J. Watt miss the Houston Texans’ week four game against the Tennessee Titans?
The Houston Texans have to be one of the most banged up teams in the NFL heading into week four.
Defensive lineman J.J. Watt ended up missing practice on Thursday because of the finger injury that he suffered back in week one.
The good news is that both defensive lineman D.J. Reader and cornerback Marcus Burley were limited after sitting out on Wednesday.
The bad news is that offensive lineman Greg Mancz sat out after being limited on Wednesday. They will need him to be ready for the Titans this week.
When it comes to Watt, I expect him to be fine. It doesn’t hurt to give a veteran like Watt a day off to rest. Especially since he’s not getting any younger and missed almost all of last season.
Here is the Texans’ full injury report:
One piece of good news when it comes to the Texans’ injury situation is that wide receiver Will Fuller looks like he’s ready to make his 2017 debut after missing the entire preseason and the first three games of the regular season due to a broken collarbone.
Texan’s head coach Bill O’Brien believes Fuller will be ready to go.
"“I would see him being ready to go on Sunday,” O’Brien said."
With Fuller coming back, the Texans’ offense could become more explosive. It also helps that rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson seems to be getting better with each passing week.
