J.J. Watt Says His Back Feels Fantastic

By: Joshua Reese

Houston (CBS HOUSTON) – Saturday night, J.J. Watt was back in action, but this time not on the turf at NRG, he was on the grass over at Minute Maid Park, for his yearly softball classic.

After spending most of last season on injured reserve, watching from the sidelines, the Houston Texans sack master joined his teammates for a seven-inning softball game to help raise money for his charity, the J.J. Watt Foundation.

While Watt is coming off two back surgeries last season, he declared himself A-Ok Saturday night.

“I feel fantastic,” J.J. Watt said of his back before the game. “I’ve done more core work in the past eight months than just about anyone in the world. My core is about as tight and as locked in as it can get at the moment.”

With no restrictions, Watt played centerfield, drove in a few runs for team defense, not to mention he won the home run derby that took place before the game.

Watt wasn’t making tackles Saturday night, but if he needed to looks like he was healthy enough to do it.
