J.J. Watt is ready to roll after two offseason surgeries.
The Houston Texans All-Pro defensive end opened up about how frustrating this offseason has been for him and how he’s ready to begin the regular season.
“Obviously, going through two surgeries, that was tough,” Watt said, per the team’s official Twitter account. “I’m really looking forward to have a new mountain to climb.”
The three-time AP Defensive Player of the Year had sports hernia and back surgeries during the offseason, which caused him to miss the entire preseason.
Despite missing the team’s four exhibition games, Watt explained that he’s 100 percent ready for Week 1 against the Chicago Bears.
“We look forward to opening up with (the Bears) and we have a lot of respect for them,” the defensive end said.
Watt confidently proclaimed he can do “anything and everything” that he’s asked to do Sunday versus Chicago.
“I’m sure they are going to try to put some limitations,” Watt added. “The way I’ve felt in the last two practices, I don’t feel that is necessary.”
From the sounds of it, the Texans’ best player is ready to go. Houston might not need Watt to topple the Bears, but the Texans are light years better with No. 99 on the field.
