J.J. Watt suffered another setback this week, though this time, it's minor. The Texans' defensive end was limited in practice Sunday due to left elbow soreness returning early in the week. Watt was sporting a brace, and says he would continue wearing it the rest of the season as a precaution. "Cosmetically, I'm just not a huge fan of the way it looks," Watt said, "but it never really bothered me from a playing standpoint so I don't see it being an issue whatsoever. It's just something I have to play with and that's it." Last year, Watt was forced to wear the brace all season after injuring his elbow during training camp that forced him to wear the brace all last season. He went on to record 20.5 sacks and was awarded The Associated Press' Defensive Player of the Year. "I just want to be smart with it. I put his left elbow through a lot of work over the last week," he said. "It's done a lot of work without the brace for the first time in a long time, so I'm bringing the brace back just as kind of a security measure, you know, to make sure it stays secure and it stays safe." "His elbow's just sore," head coach Gary Kubiak said. "We brought him out here to practice today, wanted to keep him out of contact. As y'all could see, the majority of practice was contact." Watt is expected to return to practice Monday though to what extent is unknown. This comes off news that running back Arian Foster remained sidelined after he was expected to practice for the first time Sunday. Foster remains day-to-day due to a sore back. Foster sat out with sore back. "Expected him out there today but it didn't happen." Kubiak Texans. Houston Texans (@HoustonTexans) August 4, 2013
