Is JJ Watt done? I cant seem to find a conclusive report anywhere. Im sure its posted somewhere in here but wasnt able to find it either. I see reports saying hes getting surgery but also separate reports saying theyre considering re-habing. Seems a little underreported…

I read somewhere a while ago that he could be back for late playoffs/SB when we are in it.

They aren't announcing anything other than he is on IR.

if I had to guess... my guess would be the injury is serious, but there is layers... so Watt, knowing he is nearing the end...is looking for a way to partially repair his shoulder so he can get on the field for the playoffs.... then have the more inclusive surgery after the season is over.
just a guess

It’s official he did have surgery… He’s hoping for a return and is already in the weight room

This news is actually fantastic. Assuming he had the surgery about a week ago, that means he has 10 or 11 weeks to heal before we play our first playoff game (depending on whether or not we get the bye).

So that’s two and-a-half to almost three months to get right. If anyone can do that, it’s JJ Watt.

Outside of Kyler, I think our team has missed Watt the most. Our run D has looked super suspect in his absence.

Getting our de facto vocal leader back for the biggest game in over 5 years is going to be an intangible boost that can’t quite be measured. This sounds premature and is a bold statement, but having Watt return for the playoffs could very well be what pushes this team over the top. And it’s not just that he’s a leader in the locker room, he is a leader on the field. JJ was straight dominating for a handful of weeks before suffering the injury against Houston.

I. Am. Pumped.

JJ is suiting up again this season, take it to the bank.

Man, seems like playing for the first round bye would be essential if it means getting Watt back in time. Having him back for the playoffs would be a huge boost to this team!
I would be the biggest comeback from injury in the NFL ive ever witnessed ( in season )

Don’t want to be the Debbie downer, but I’ll be shocked if he plays again this season.

His rehab time is being reported as a two to three months. I would get the skepticism if this was like a four to sixth month injury, but based on reports I don’t see why he can’t make a return for the playoffs.
