J.J. Watt leaves Texans practice with elbow injury


The Hall of Fame might have to wait. Texans defensive end J.J. Watt, who earned high praise for his work early in camp, wasn’t able to finish practice Thursday with an elbow injury.

Dale Robertson of the Houston Chronicle reports that Watt was taken to the training room by cart after getting his arm “caught in a tangle of players at the end of a running play.”

Texans coach Gary Kubiak said after practice he had no further information on Watt’s condition.

Watt’s the fourth Texans starter to get hurt in the first week of camp.

Wide receiver Andre Johnson (groin), left tackle Duane Brown (lower leg) and cornerback Kareem Jackson (hamstring) have all missed time, but Kubiak said he expected all of them to be ready for the regular season opener.

  1. I’ve wondered for a long time if the Texans experience much turnover with their training staff. The past few years (last year excepting, of course), they’ve struggle to close out games, which I think was due in part to poor conditioning and health. Seems like there are a lot of injuries to the Texans on a regular basis. I know injuries are part and parcel of playing football, but I feel like Houston in particular gets a lot of injured players.

  2. Kubiak needs to sit any players of importance if they want to win. The injury monster in Houston shows no mercy

  3. Houston is hurt. Tennessee is rebuilding with Locker. The Jags are, well, the Jags. Watch out for Luck and the Colts this year as a sleeper division winner.
