J.J. Watt back surgery

He could be out up to 10 weeks. He's starting training camp on the PUP list.

Panic?

Bears at Texans week 1! With JJ Watt out, I would definitely start Jeremy Langford/ Buy him for week 1. I'm not sure if Langford would be a top 5 RB play for week 1 but for sure he's a top 10 RB play.

Is this true that Watt may play in Week 1?

Is he a larger version of Wolverine?

Not sure how I feel about that if true. I know he's unlike us mortals, but I really don't want to see him push himself to get back on the field too quickly.

I just worry it could become a lingering issue, but hopefully that is just worrying over nothing.

Would like to think we can handle Chicago without him.

Well, BOB is saying that he will be available. That may not mean that he's going to play. I'm also concerned more long-term.

Gotta agree... shouldn't rush him back. I want to see him have a very long and productive career.

Yeah, I just saw that.

Shut him down for the season. Let him heal up completely.
