J.J. Watt undergoes back surgery, to start camp on PUP

J.J. Watt has endured a number of injuries and hasn’t missed a game yet.

But there’s reason for concern as the Texans’ superstar defensive end was about to head to training camp.

According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, Watt has undergone back surgery, and will open camp on the physically unable to perform list.

Watt is expected to be fine by the start of the regular season.

Watt played through a number of problems last year including a broken hand and had offseason surgery for a sports hernia. But he’s continued to make himself available and play at a dominant level, so he’s earned some benefit of the doubt.
