Texans Issue Unexpected JJ Watt Health Update
The Texans issued a unexpected JJ Watt health update on Tuesday.
According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, Watt is set to make his triumphant return this weekend when Houston takes on the Buffalo Bills in the opening around of the playoffs.
Watt went down with a pectoral injury in Week 8 of the season, with most assuming he was done for the year.
Watt practicing and will be activated and return against the Bills.

Fortunately for the Texans, Watt kept rehabbing the entire time and will now be available to help his squad take on a surprisingly tough 10-6 Bills team.
It remains to be seen how rusty Watt will be in his return, but given his skill set, even at half-effectiveness he is better than a lot of defenders are at a full strength.
