J.J. Watt hasn’t played a snap of football since going down against Kansas City on Sunday Night Football. Both him and Whitney Mercilus had their seasons come to an end in that no-good-awful-terrible football game. Since both their injuries, we haven’t heard much from either of them. Watt has been on the sidelines and in press booths. Mercilus hasn’t really been found anywhere, which is probably because the cameras just love Watt. Neither has spoken at length about their season-ending injuries.

Now that the Texans’ season has come to a close, Watt has finally opened up a bit about his injury. He says he is expected to be ready for training camp. See the tweets below from Mark Berman.

You are probably like me. We both were ready for next season as soon as Deshaun Watson tore his ACL in practice on November 2nd. Insurmountable injuries to key parts of this team were simply something the roster couldn’t overcome. Those injuries derailed this season, not poor performance and coaching.

And probably like me, you are ready for all this cold weather to end and see a fully healthy Texans squad in 2018.
