Houston Texans coach Bill O'Brien expects quarterback Deshaun Watson to be ready for training camp, and he hopes defensive end J.J. Watt will be able to participate in practice then too.
Watson played in only seven games, including six starts, during his promising rookie season in 2017 before he tore his ACL in practice, ending his season.
"Doing a good job in his rehab, I think he's on schedule to be able to participate in training camp," O'Brien said on NFL Network regarding Watson. "We're excited about that. We've had a good four-week session with him in the offseason program."
It remains to seen whether Watson will be a full participant at the start of camp, but indications are positive.
O'Brien also expressed optimism regarding the 29-year-old Watt. He did not give a timetable for Watt's return to practice, but said he expected him to be at full strength at some point.
