The three-time Defensive Player of the Year hasn't played since he suffered a broken
Nearly 11 months from his most recent NFL game Johnathan Joseph Jersey , Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt isn't hiding his eagerness to get back on the field.The prior year, he missed the final 13 games of the 2016 season with a back injury that required surgery.With his recent string of injuries, Watt said he has one major objective if coach Bill O'Brien lets him play in the team's dress-rehearsal game against the Rams in Los Angeles on Saturday night."I want to come out healthy," Watt said. "I want to be able to go on the field and then come back off the field."Sounds simple enough, right?When the Texans selected pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 draft to complement Watt, the duo was expected to menace quarterbacks for years to come.Four seasons later, however, the two have played in just 25 of 64 games together as Clowney dealt with injuries early in his career and Watt has struggled to stay on the field the past two years.This summer, Watt has been active in practice and has shown glimpses of what made him great in four consecutive Pro Bowl seasons from 2012 to 2015. Last year, despite the injuries, he made his impact off the field, raising more than $37 million for Hurricane Harvey relief. The accolades continued to roll in this offseason when he picked up the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year as well as the Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year honors for 2017.Now nearly a year removed and feeling healthy, Watt has plenty of reasons to be optimistic about the 2018 season."This year has been a lot better than last year," Watt said. "Last year, we were up there (for training camp in West Virginia) for three weeks, then we were in New Orleans, and then we were stuck in Dallas with the hurricane. Just about anything is better than last year. This has been a good camp so far and we're excited to have a strong finish."The Texans went back to West Virginia again this summer, but only for two weeks before returning to Houston for joint practices against San Francisco. O'Brien — who has been mum on Watt's status for Saturday — said Watt looked good in the practices against the 49ers.Clowney, who missed most of the offseason and training camp in his recovery from arthroscopic knee surgery in January, returned to practice on Monday.Practicing alongside Watt again, Clowney is just as optimistic about the defense helping the Texans bounce back from a 4-12 record last season."The sky is the limit for this defense," Clowney said. "We just have to come to play like we do — week in and week out and try and stay healthy. If we stay healthy Youth J.J. Watt Jersey , I don't see much bad going wrong with this defensive line and this secondary we put together. I'm excited about this team and this defense."Watt said he's excited about Houston's offseason pickup in safety Tyrann Mathieu, praising the new addition's value as a teammate and playmaker."There's guys all over the place," Watt said. "We have a chance to be a very good defense, but it's up to us to go out there and execute and do it. It's easy to look on paper and say we're going to be good, but it's another thing to go out there and perform."While Watt might be chomping at the bit to get a taste of game action on Saturday, he said as a pass rusher, he doesn't have any specific reintroductions to the game such as a receiver getting hit for the first time or a linebacker making the first tackle after a lengthy absence."I mean, I'm not sure I need to get pancake-blocked or anything like that," Watt said with a grin. "You just want to hit the pads. You want to try and make a tackle and get back up. You have to get up, get back in line and try to make another play." New York Giants cornerback B.W. Webb is going to be targeted by the Houston Texans this weekend.It's a given.Starting cornerback Eli Apple is going to miss the game with a hamstring injury and Webb seemingly is going to replace him in the starting lineup.

That gives Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson two options. Throw at Pro Bowl cornerback Janoris Jenkins or go after Webb, a five-year veteran who didn't play a down last season in limited time with Cleveland.It's a no brainer. It was the strategy Dak Prescott and the Cowboys used successfully after Apple left Sunday night's game.While the Texans (0-2) have two outstanding receivers in DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller, Webb has typical cornerback confidence. He believes he can fill in well for the Giants (0-2)."I don't go into any situation thinking I am going to be a backup," Webb said Friday. "It's kind of been the tale everywhere I went. Where I go, somebody goes down, and I step up, whether the starter, nickel, outside. It's just the nature of football."Webb came into the NFL as a fourth-round pick by Dallas out of William & Mary in 2013. He has played in 53 NFL games with Dallas, Pittsburgh, Tennessee, New Orleans and now the Giants. He has 10 career starts.Coach Pat Shurmur believes in the guys and his pass defense, which is allowing an average of 164 yards Authentic Zach Cunningham Jersey , No. 2 in the league."We've got guys that we trust and we're going to put them in there and we trust that they're going to go out there and play well," he said.Shurmur also can use cornerback Donte Deayon, who has a nose for the ball. He dropped an interception against Dallas."He's a good cover guy and he has a good knack for getting his hands on the ball," Shurmur said. "Even though he hasn't secured some of the interceptions, he's at least getting his hands on the ball. We've just got to finish those with picks. That's really his strong suit, is being able to cover."The Giants have to worry about more than covering the pass. The Texans have averaged an NFL-best 157.5 yards rushing. The Giants are allowing 137.5 yards rushing, 29th in the league.Opposing quarterbacks have hurt New York with their legs. Blake Bortles of the Jaguars had four carries for 42 yards and Prescott had seven for 45. That's 87 yards on 11 carries, a 7.9 yard average.Defensive coordinator James Bettcher has spent a lot of time in recent weeks working on zone reads for is defense."I got to coach it better, and then collectively as a group, we've got to execute it better," Bettcher said. "There's no magic pixie dust to sprinkle on it, nothing like that. It is coach it better, and execute it better. That's a very simple solution, to be very honest with you."Defensive captain Landon Collins believes the unit has finally fixed the problem. The Giants just have to stop the run Sunday."They're the top rushing team for a reason," Collins said. "They're doing really good at what they do best. Like I said, we just got to do what we do best on defense, stop the run, and try to get them in long distances so we can get off the field."NOTES: LB Olivier Vernon is going to miss his third straight game with a high ankle sprain. He admitted he is frustrated not playing, but once again deferred questions about his injury and possible return to Shurmur. ... LB Connor Barwin (knee) practiced fully after being limited Thursday. TE Evan Engram (ankle) also is ready.
