JJ Watt tweets, 'It's time'

A tweet from Texans defensive end JJ Watt is stirring speculation that the star player could be ready to play in the team's regular season opener Sunday.

Sunday's home opener will be exactly seven-and-a-half weeks since Watt had surgery on his spine.

On July 20, the NFL said Watt had to have surgery on a herniated disc, a typically painful procedure that doctors said takes eight to 12 weeks of recovery.

Watt has left hints that he is already healed and prepared to take on the Bears. Sunday night he tweeted a photo with the caption "It's time."

Coach Bill O'Brien said this weekend that Watt passed his physical and may be ready for practice Monday.
Previously, orthopedic surgeon Neil Badlani told KPRC2 health reporter Haley Hernandez that Watt should not come back too soon and risk recurring injury.

"A normal rehab process for this would be probably eight weeks minimum, and that's really pushing it," Badlani said. "It's probably more like 10 to 12 weeks. Again, there (are) variations depending on how big the herniated disc was and the individual athlete."

If Watt does OK in practice this week, he could be ready to play the Chicago Bears at NRG Stadium for the regular season opener Sunday.

It's Time.</p>-- JJ Watt (@JJWatt) September 5, 2016
