Watt recorded his first career touchdown reception in Sunday's win over the Oakland Raiders. The 6-foot-6, 290-pound Watt played tight end in high school and at Central Michigan before transferring to Wisconsin.
Watt, who is considered one of the top defensive players in the league, signed a six-year, $100 million contract extension in September.
The Texans (2-0) face the New York Giants on Sunday.
Bill O'Brien just said you can expect Texans to use J.J. Watt 'more and more' moving forward as red-zone TE. Watch out league!! — Jordan Raanan (@JordanRaanan) September 17, 2014
