Found August 02, 2012 on State of the Texans:

According to Head Coach Gary Kubiak, star defensive end J.J. Watt dislocated his elbow will be out for a short amount of time. He will be ready for Week One at the latest. Kubiak was quick to say, “We dodged another bullet.” There will be no rush to get Watt back on the field according to Kubiak, because they know what they are going to get from him.

J.J. Watt has been a star in the making since he was taken 11th overall in the 2011 NFL Draft out of Wisconsin, and placed into the starting defensive end position for the Texans. Watt has had a nice start to his training camp and looked in midseason form in the early practices with pads. His injury had plenty of his teammates concerned, especially his defensive teammates.

The Houston Texans have been cursed when it comes to injuries, and after a 2011 season that marred the season, training camp hasn’t started off to well. Injuries have gotten Andre Johnson (Groin), Duane Brown (Bone Bruise), Darryl Sharpton (Hip, Quad) and Kareem Jackson (Hamstring).
