Analysis: Barring any setbacks, the three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year should be raring to go once training camp begins, though the Texans may hold him out of all or part of OTAs as a precaution. Watt played in just three games before undergoing a season-ending microdisectomy procedure in late September.

Watt was placed on the injured reserve Wednesday with a back injury.
Analysis: It's his second back surgery in two months after he missed training camp and Houston's four preseason games after surgery in July to repair a herniated disk. He started each of the team's three regular-season games and was hurt again Thursday night against the New England Patriots. Watt, who has won Defensive Player of the Year for the past two seasons, will miss a game for the first time in his career Sunday after starting 83 straight games since he was drafted.

In tying Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor as the only players to take the award three times, Watt earned 37 votes from a nationwide panel of 50 sports writers and broadcasters who regularly cover the NFL. Rams tackle Aaron Donald received seven votes.
