It was reported that J. J. Watt could be back at some point this season after re-injuring his back against the New England Patriots. The Houston Texans placed Watt on injured reserve on Wednesday.

As of late last night, however, Watt is done for the 2016 season after undergoing surgery yesterday.

As Rapoport tweeted, as long as Watt progresses as he should, a return for the 2017 is to be expected. The former Badger recorded eight tackles and 1.5 sacks in his three games played this season.
