Texans prepare for Titans without Watt

HOUSTON -- There was need to sugarcoat the harsh reality of what moving forward without All-Pro defensive end J.J. Watt will mean for the Texans, both in the short term with their first AFC South game on tap and from the extended view of maintaining their status as a postseason hopeful buoyed by their stout defense.

The Texans (2-1) placed Watt on injured reserve Wednesday, a move necessitated by Watt reaggravating the back injury that resulted in surgery in July and his missing the entire preseason. Watt returned in time for the season opener against the Chicago Bears, but with three relatively modest performances (eight tackles, five quarterback hits and 1.5 sacks) came the stark reality that Watt just wasn't himself.

"Going on IR will give J.J. all the time that he needs to make sure he's 100 percent healthy and back to being himself the next time he steps on the football field," Texans coach Bill O'Brien said. "This decision made by the organization is in the best interest of J.J.'s long-term health and that's what is most important to us, this organization and this team, is obviously the health of the player."
