Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (pectoral) was designated to return from the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Dec. 24.
Huddle Up: Watt is questionable to come back for Week 17, and even if he does, he might be limited. He could be useful in IDP playoff leagues as a low-end DL1.

Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (pectoral) could return in Week 17 if the team hasn't clinched a playoff spot.
Huddle Up: Watt had 24 total tackles and four sacks in eight games, and he would have an OK matchup against the Tennessee Titans. He could be a low-end DL1 play if he makes it back.

Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (pectoral) is reportedly generating optimism that he can recover from the torn pectoral muscle he suffered in late October and return from the Reserve/Injured list and play at some point during the playoffs. 'He's certainly made progress based on his work ethic and who he's working with in the training room. We will see,' head coach Bill O'Brien said.

Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (pectoral) is doing very well in his recovery and has a chance to return to the team for the Week 17 game or the playoffs, according to sources. The Texans can activate one more player off the Reserve/Injured list and are hoping Watt will be able to return. Watt is scheduled to undergo an MRI in a few weeks to check on the injury.

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (pectoral) will have surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle this week. He'll have a recovery time around four months or so, which should put him back before organized team activities.

Updating previous reports, Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (pectoral) will miss the remainder of the season due to a torn pectoral muscle.
Huddle Up: That's going to make things a little tougher for linebacker Whitney Mercilus, who plays on the strong side where Watt received so much attention. Mercilus has just 0.5 sacks in the last three games and might be expendable in individual defensive player leagues with just 19 tackles on the season.
