Only days removed from defeating his former Houston Texans teammates, J.J. Watt’s season is likely over as the defensive end needs shoulder surgery, according to multiple reports.
#AZCardinals DE JJ Watt played the entire second half last week… and now needs shoulder surgery, source said. The recovery is likely at least three months, which may knock him out for the season. A tough situation for the veteran.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 28, 2021
Watt was in his first year with the Arizona Cardinals after spending his first 10 seasons with the Texans, where he is easily atop the Texans’ career sacks list and was a three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year. In seven games this season, Watt had one sack for the unbeaten Cardinals.
Arizona had just defeated the Texans 31-5 on Sunday in Watt’s first game against his former teammates.
