Jadeveon Clowney isn’t the only high-profile Texans defender dealing with an injury, as defensive end J.J. Watt has a hyperextended knee.
The injury happened during Thursday’s OTA session, and Watt didn’t practice on Friday.
“He’s fine,” coach Bill O’Brien said, via Brian Smith of the Houston Chronicle. “It’s not serious at all. We just gave him the day off.”
Even if Watt is fine, the situation should serve as a reminder for Watt that, with three years of significant achievement and two years left under his rookie contract, he would be wise to try to get his long-term deal sooner than later.
