Houston (CBS Houston) – Defensive end J.J. Watt will not start Sunday’s game against the Saints. It was unclear why the all-pro will not be in the starting lineup, Jared Crick will start in his place.
After the Dolphins game last week Watt expressed some mild frustration with his pre-season reps.
“I’m like a caged animal, and I feel like I’m stuck in my cage, and they’ve got me tied up, and chained up. I’m just chomping, and they keep putting me in for two plays. It’s like they are putting a steak in front of me, and they pull it back.” said Watt.
