Just when Houston had a glimmer of hope for the season. Everything had been seemingly going in the right direction for the Houston Texans.

J.J. Watt suffers an injury to his back after returning early in the season and not 100%. I understand that players want to play and that sometimes because of that, they rush a minor injury recovery.
Injuries are not meant to be rushed. Take your time at getting back and if it’s meant to be, a return to the game will happen.
Who is responsible on the Texans for this setback that now is putting Watt on the IR once again? Was Watt pushing himself a little too much? Did the training staff have too much pressure to get him back on the field from the coaching staff?
I wouldn’t rule out the Texans defense totally yet. As long as there are other guys willing to step up, the defense is still a deadly force that any quarterback to plays against it should fear.
