HOUSTON (SportsRadio 610) -- Two months after tearing his pectoral muscle, J.J. Watt is returning to the Texans practice field ahead of a playoff run.
SportsRadio 610 insider John McClain reported Tuesday morning the Texans superstar is returning, after much speculation about his recovery.

Watt was placed on the injured list after the injury in October, which meant he'd miss the final eight games of the season. The Texans now have a 21-day window to activate Watt. 

He will not be able to play in the regular season-finale against the Titans, but could be available for the first playoff game.

"Texans don’t have to make a decision on Watt’s playing status until they believe he’s ready," McClain tweeted. "He’ll have two weeks of practice. ...

"Having Watt back will be a tremendous boost to the defense. He’s made an impressive recovery from surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle in a victory over Oakland."

JJ Watt will practice and is expected to play in the playoffs.
