J.J. Watt is set to return for the Houston Texans in the NFL playoff game against the Buffalo Bills on Saturday after being activated off injured reserve.
Watt, 30, has been sidelined since October because of a torn pectoral muscle, an injury that was expected to keep the Texans' star defensive end out for the remainder of the season.
The team, however, announced Tuesday that Watt had been activated ahead of its clash against the Bills in the wild-card round.
