With injury news coming out every day unsettlingly, we’re tracking all the major takeaways from every team’s camp, be it good or bad, and what that could mean for each franchise heading into the season.
Keeping things going today, we examine all 32 teams’ training camps to date, continuing things with the AFC South.
Houston Texans Three-time defensive player of the year J.J. Watt reportedly “crushed” his conditioning test and has been participating in team drills at training camp.
Early in his career, Watt established himself as one of the most-dominant pass-rushers in the game, earning elite grades in four of his seven professional seasons and from 2011-2015 he racked up an incredible 415 quarterback pressures, which was by far the most among all defensive players in the game.
Due to injury, Watt has managed to play just 374 defensive snaps in the last two campaigns, so it will be relief to see him back on the football field again.
Jacksonville Jaguars The team has placed edge-defender Dante Fowler on the active/PUP list.
As a member of one of the best pass-rushing units in football, he showed flashes las year and racked up 37 pressures from 333 pass-rushing snaps for a pass-rushing productivity of 6.9, which ranked 33rd among the 54 edge defenders with at least 300 pass-rushing snaps.
It’ll be a huge hit to the Titans secondary and their run defense this year, as Cyprien performed admirably against the run in 2017.
