The Houston Texans have dealt with their share of injuries so far this training camp and the latest is to defensive end J.J. Watt. The second year player dislocated his elbow at training camp on Thursday.
Watt is targeting a Week 1 return from the injury, but the next month is still a time for players to show they can fill in during the injury.
In the mean time, Tim Jamison and Ra'Shon Harris will look to fill the void left by Watt. Having attended Texans training camp last year, I remember being very impressed by Jamison and what he brings to the table. If Watt should miss any time, it would hurt, but Jamison should be able to hold the fort.
A season ago, Watt had 56 tackles and 5.5 sacks. Without Mario Williams or DeMeco Ryans, the Texans will need him on the field.
