A healthy Watt's happy to start camp

Back and leg injuries have made Watt a spectator for most of 2016 and '17.

White Sulphur Springs, WV - Texans defensive end J.J. Watt's played eight games in the last two seasons. Back and leg injuries have made the former Badgers star a spectator when Houston struggled to a 4-12 season in 2017.

The Texans kicked of training camp this week, and Watt's happy to be back at full speed.

"The biggest thing is you just want to test out your lungs, test out your legs, make sure you're fresh, make sure you're in shape. That's the biggest thing for me and I felt really good out there," the eighth-year pro said.

Watt even took some time play soccer with his teammates after practice. He said spending time with his teammates is one of the biggest losses when you get hit with injuries.

"That's the biggest thing you miss during the time off is being in the locker room, being on the field. Messing around with the guys on the sidelines. That's the most fun."
