J.J. Watt on finger: It’s still attached

Texans defensive end J.J. Watt isn’t worried about his dislocated finger. It’s ugly but not as ugly as his team’s loss to the Jaguars, so that’s where his focus is.

“It’s still inside my body,” Watt said of his finger, via Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. “That’s all that matters. It’s still attached.”

The Texans listed him as limited in Tuesday’s practice.

Watt had only one tackle and one quarterback pressure in his first game back since Week 3 of last season. It didn’t go as planned for him, the Texans or the city in its recovery from Hurricane Harvey.

That’s why Thursday can’t get here fast enough.

“We’re looking forward to going out there and playing a game,” Watt said. “Learn from your mistakes and then putting it behind you, understanding exactly what you did wrong and fixing it quickly. I’m very excited to get back on the field and play some better football.”

  1. He’s seems kind of annoying, but all that money he raised for the city of Houston gives him more than enough slack to make up for it.

  2. Not a Texans fan yet I wonder why all the JJ Watt hate?

    3 time DPOY
    Continued big-hearted guy
    Plays all out

    Why hate on him?

    And to the cat who said Reggie White was better. I’m old enough to have watched Reggie and he was a monster. Yet Watt is ar least as good if not better.

    If he stays healthy he will be among the elite to have ever played.

    Generational talent, seems like a good all around guy BUT people hate the constant “Look at me! Why are you looking at me?” thing he does.

  4. “If this happened to mean Joe Greene or dick Butkus they wouldn’t have told anybody.” If this happened to Dick Butkus he would have thought his finger betrayed him and took it out on some poor running back.

    Most over hyped player in the NFL

    No one shows up less in big games than JJ Not

    The QB he’ll be chasing Thursday would give him a good fight for that crown.

  6. Not a bad idea to mention it. Brady played an entire season with broken ribs and never complained, so the dunces call him soft.

  7. JJ Watt is an idiot. I speak from experience. If you don’t let your finger heal properly when it is dislocated you get what is called a goose neck. It is a dis-figuration of the joint in which your bones get stuck in a bent shape. The only way to correct this is through surgery. This deformity also causes you to lose mobility in your fingers. An effective pass rusher uses his hands and JJ Watt is going to have a disfigured hand if he insists on playing through this injury.

  8. this guy is one tough s.o.b. He plays his butt off every play and is very intense. The problem with J.J. is that he won’t be able to walk properly when he is in his 40’s due to the beating he puts his body through every year, great player though!
