JJ Watt returns home for Texans Packers joint practice

JJ Watt returns home for Texans Packers joint practice

The Texans have been practicing with the Packers ahead their preseason-opening game at Lambeau Field on Thursday, which meant Watt, a Wisconsin native, finally had the chance to participate in the annual bike ride.

The Texans and the Green Bay Packers are doing two joint training camp practices in Wisconsin ahead of their National Football League preseason game on Thursday, the first time since 2005 that the Packers are hosting another National Football League team for training camp.

But Watt plans to reimburse the young fan for the bike "rental". But not long after Watt, who's 6-foot-5, 285 pounds, sat on the seat and started "riding" the bike, he broke the seat. "I've purchased a new bike for the boy". The children were hoping he would pick them to ride their bike to practice. Watt said the whole experience was great "until I broke the bike". "I apologize for that". "It's one of the coolest traditions".

"I wouldn't mind if they didn't do it for another 14 years", Rodgers said Tuesday, via video from packersnews.com. "The kickoff especially is one of the most unsafe plays in football and that's why they've tweaked different things over the years, close to a live kickoff drill I don't think is best use of a inter-squad practice like that". "For me to be able to participate in it as a player was cool". The seat ended up breaking as Watt got closer to the field.

Watt isn't the only Wisconsinite on the Texans' roster: rookie offensive lineman Max Scharping is from Green Bay, and graduated from the city's Green Bay Southwest High before going on to play at Northern Illinois.
