HOUSTON (CBS Houston) – Texans coach Gary Kubiak learned more about the injury defensive end J.J. Watt suffered during the morning practice Thursday. Watt suffered a dislocated elbow when he got caught up in a pile during a scrimmage play.

When he learned the details of Watt’s injury, coach Gary Kubiak put his face in his hands. Kubiak didn’t want to give a time table for Watt’s return but mentioned two weeks as a possible rehab time span. He emphasized he expects Watt to be ready for Week of the regular season.

“We’ve got to work to get better,” Kubiak said about losing a player during practice. “We hold our breath everyday.”

Watt’s teammates seem to be more optimistic.

Defensive end Antonio Smith told SportRadio 610 that from what Kubiak told the players, he believes Watt will be back soon.

Tim Jamison is behind Watt in the depth chart and will likely get his reps during Watt’s absence. Rookie defensive end Jared Crick, a fourth-round pick out of Nebraska, will also get more reps.
