The current ability to physically perform of one Justin James Watt has been dissected at some length, but he won't be the only member of your Houston Texans who starts training camp on the sidelines. Additionally, the Texans announced that they've signed another wide receiver.

Quenton Bundrage is likely the campiest of camp bodies thanks to an extremely deep wide receiving corps. Nevertheless, best of luck to him as he competes for a job here or somewhere else in the NFL.
In terms of those who'll be joining Watt on the PUP List, I have to admit I'm bummed to see Lonnie Ballentine's name there. Recall that he suffered a bad knee injury in October after battling back from a previous season-ending injury. I'm rooting for him to have a career in the NFL; the guy deserves a bit of good luck.
Although I didn't expect Duane Brown to be full-go for the start of training camp, coming off a horrific injury of his own a little more than six months ago, it's a gross understatement to say he's needed back on the field as quickly as possible. Houston's offensive line will have at least two new starters on it, and you'd hate to see Brock Osweiler have to deal with a third starter on his blind side if it can be avoided (though Chris Clark did do yeoman work last year and is capable of holding the spot down if necessary).
