CBS Houston – According to SportsRadio 610’s John McClain , defensive end J.J. Watt has passed his physical and will be at practice on Monday. With Watt now able to practice, it is looking like he will be able to take part in the Houston Texans opener this upcoming Sunday against the Chicago Bears.
Watt missed all of training camp rehabbing from back surgery to repair a herniated disc. Over the past couple of weeks, the three-time defensive player of the year has shown signs of being able to go for the regular season. Before the Texans faced the Cardinals in their third preseason game Watt passed his conditioning test. The physical was the next step in clearing Watt for week one.
The 11th overall pick in the 2011 draft has started in all 80 games in his career. It appears as if that streak will not be coming to an end.
