Although J.J. Watt dislocated his elbow in practice Thursday, Houston Texans fans can breathe easy. Team doctors and coach Gary Kubiak said the prognosis is good for the breakout defensive end.

Watt will miss some practice time, but the Texans don’t believe his injury is serious.

“We dodged another bullet,” Kubiak said Thursday according to “All the tests came back good, and obviously, he’s going to miss some time, but he’s going to be ready to go. And knowing J.J., it’s going to be pretty darn quick. So we’re very, very fortunate.”

Kubiak didn’t rule out Watt, who has already started rehabbing his elbow, Watt has not been ruled out for the preseason, but there is no word as of yet exactly how long he will be on the mend. It is not expected that this injury will negatively affect the season.

Watt, a rookie last season, started every game. He finished with 56 tackles and 5.5 sacks, helping the Texans reach the playoffs, a first for the franchise.
