Cardinals LB Zaven Collins (shoulder) and DE J.J. Watt (calf) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers. Collins managed limited practices all week. Watt sat out Wednesday and Thursday before returning to a limited Friday workout. We'll check the status of both players Sunday.

Cardinals S Jalen Thompson (toe) and DE J.J. Watt (calf) are active for today's game against the Raiders. It'll be Watt's season debut, making him a risky option. Thompson should be fine to use as planned, though we'll see whether he's limited at all.

Cardinals DE J.J. Watt (calf) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders. He practiced Thursday for the 1st time since training camp. That, however, fell between a missed practice Wednesday and a limited Friday. He'll make for a risky IDP option even if active Sunday.

Cardinals DE J.J. Watt (calf) is inactive for today's game against the Chiefs. CB Byron Murphy (illness) is active after coming in questionable.

Cardinals DE J.J. Watt (calf) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He missed the entire practice week and looks like a poor IDP bet even if he turns up active. Arizona also ruled out CB Trayvon Mullen (toe), a recent acquisition from the Raiders, and deemed CB Byron Murphy questionable with an illness that sidelined him Friday. The matchup looks pretty favorable for Kansas City offensive players.

Cardinals DE J.J. Watt will have surgery on the shoulder injury that had already ruled him out for Thursday night's game against the Packers. According to multiple reports, this is likely to end Watt's season. NFL Netwrok's Ian Rapoport reports that Watt will likely need "at least" 3 months to recover. Watt reportedly hurt the shoulder in the 2nd quarter of the Week 7 win over Houston but played through it for the 2nd half. Watt's contract looks locked in with Arizona through next year.

The Cardinals have ruled DE J.J. Watt out for Thursday night's game against the Packers because of a shoulder injury. We had Watt low in the Week 8 DL rankings anyway, so this shouldn't be a huge loss for IDP lineups.

The Cardinals on Monday activated DE J.J. Watt off the PUP list. Watt had been easing back in after he hurt a hamstring during the conditioning test at the start of camp. "We wanted to make sure we were really cautious, make sure he felt 100 percent before we got him back out there," HC Kliff Kingsbury said before practice, per ESPN's Josh Weinfuss. Watt added: "We definitely took our time." Barring some setback, expect Watt to be ready for the season.

The Cardinals placed DE J.J. Watt on the PUP list Wednesday after the veteran experienced hamstring soreness following Tuesday's conditioning test. According to ESPN's Josh Weinfuss, Watt said he doesn't expect to practice Thursday and isn't sure when he'll return to the field. "We're gonna take it very slow and be very smart about it," Watt said. We'll keep an eye on the situation, but there's no reason for panic at this point.

DE J.J. Watt is signing with the Cardinals, he reports. Multiple other reports say it's a 2-year deal worth $31 million, with $23 million of that guaranteed. (So it sounds like a pact he's likely to complete.) Watt will join an Arizona defense that jumped from 20th in Football Outsiders DVOA in 2019 to 10th last season. The Cardinals also tied for 10th among fantasy defenses, by ESPN scoring. Watt looked past his prime last season but should still upgrade an unspectacular D-line and enhance a Chandler Jones-led pass rush.

The Texans are releasing DE J.J. Watt, according to multiple reports. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Watt asked the team to release him, marking yet another star player looking to get out of Houston. Watt has clearly slipped from the dominant form of his early seasons, but he remains a productive player and should find plenty of potential suitors. We'll see where the veteran lands -- and the size of his next contract -- before projecting his IDP outlook for 2021 and beyond.

Texans DE J.J. Watt will miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn pectoral muscle in Sunday's win over the Raiders. Watt confirmed the season-ending injury via Twitter on Sunday night. Losing him can only hurt a Houston defense that had already proved disappointing for fantasy.

The Texans removed DE J.J. Watt from the PUP list in time for him to take part in the team's 1st training-camp practice Thursday. Watt had a "cleanup" knee procedure way back in January, NFL Network reported at the time. His quick activation confirms that we don't need to worry about anything.

Texans DE J.J. Watt is opening training camp on the active/PUP list. He had a knee "cleaned up" in January and is likely just getting a little extra rest to rebound from that. We've seen no indication the star DE has a worrisome issue, and he's coming off his 1st 16-game season in 3 years (with 16 sacks). Expect Watt to be fine for IDP fantasy football drafts.

Texans DE J.J. Watt (knee) is active for today’s game against the Browns, as expected. Keep him locked into IDP lineups.

Texans DE J.J. Watt is questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns with a knee issue that limited his practice all week. It doesn't sound like Watt's in danger of missing the game, but we'll check on his status Sunday morning.

Texans DE J.J. Watt says things are going well as he works his way back from the broken leg that ended his season in Week 5. “It’s doing really, really well,” Watt said, per ESPN's Sarah Barshop. “[I’m] very excited about where it’s going. I’m on track for training camp. But my assumption is that it shouldn’t be any problem, but if it needs a couple extra weeks, whatever, we’ll take it. From my understanding and from everybody here’s understanding, the way it’s looking, everything’s going really well. There shouldn’t be any issues.” We'll keep an eye on him as training camp approaches. A healthy Watt remains a potentially dominant force both on the field and IDP fantasy football leagues.
