UPDATE (8:40pm): ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that J.J. Watt will go on the Injured Reserve on Wednesday and the team will resign Antonio Smith.
Houston (CBS HOUSTON) – The Houston Texans might find out what life without J.J. Watt is like for the first time in the 3-time Defensive Player of the Year’s career.
A report from NFL.com’s Ian Rapaport says that Watt re-injured the back he hurt during the 2015 season.
Watt had played in all 83 games in his career since being drafted 11th overall in 2011. He currently has 1.5 sacks and 1 tackle on the season in 2016.
He was given Monday off from practice after a long weekend following the 27-0 loss to the Patriots on Thursday Night. It was called a routine day off by the team.
