Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (elbow) is expected to be ready for Week 1. Watt has not played in preseason games for the Texans, but if it was the regular season, Watt would have only missed two contests.
Huddle Up: Watt played all 16 games as a rookie a season ago, recording 5.5 sacks and scoring a memorable TD off an interception in the wild-card win over the Bengals. If the Texans are to remain a top-12 fantasy defense, they'll need Watt on the field.

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (elbow) suffered a dislocated elbow during practice Thursday, Aug. 2, but doctors popped back into position. He is not expected to miss much time because of the injury.
Huddle Up: The Texans can breathe a sigh of relief. Watt, in only his second season, is being counted on as a key playmaker in Wade Phillips' defense with the offseason departures of Mario Williams and DeMeco Ryans.
