J.J. Watt could return from torn pec for playoffs

Could he possibly return?

The Texans are in the thick of the playoff race in 2019 despite being down one of their best players.

The Houston Texans' star defensive end was considered to be done for the season after suffering a torn pectoral muscle in late October. "Thanks for the entire ideas & well-wishes".

Watt was never officially ruled out for the year, but he tweeted after picking up the injury in Week 8 that he was "absolutely gutted" that he wouldn't "be able to finish the season with my guys". Watt tore his pectoral muscle against the Raiders on October 27 and everyone assumed he was done for the year, especially after his own tweets. I really love this recreation and might't stand letting you guys down.

The Texans have one injured reserve/designated to return spot, and Sports Illustrated stated the spot is being held for Watt.

Teams can bring back two players from injured reserve each season. He is reportedly doing "incredibly well" in his rehab and feels like he could go out and play now even if it's not a realistic goal. If that were to happen, Watt could then have a "relatively routine surgery" and still be good to go for the start of the 2020 season.

The return of Watt this season is not certain - although, given this news, the team is likely to consider activating its All-Pro defender before the end of the season, but neither Texans nor Watt have confirmed again.

Prior to going down through eight games, Watt had four sacks and 20 quarterback hits.
