Texans' Watt injures elbow; should be OK
HOUSTON (AP) Houston Texans' defensive end J.J. Watt has dislocated his left elbow and will miss some practice time, but the team doesn't believe his injury is serious.
Houston coach Gary Kubiak says "all the tests came back good" and they expect him to be OK in time for the team's opener Sept. 9 against Miami.
Kubiak didn't rule out Watt playing in the preseason, but isn't sure exactly how long he'll be out.
Watt started every game as a rookie last season and finished with 56 tackles and 5 1/2 sacks as the Texans reached the playoffs for the first time.
