Eagles LB J.J. Watt ‘very excited’ about return to practice

DALLAS — Wide receiver J.j.

Watt said he is “very excited” to return to the field after missing six weeks with a knee injury.

The Eagles linebacker is expected to return Sunday against the Washington Redskins.

Watt suffered the injury in a 27-14 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Nov. 10.

The Eagles have two days off before they play the New York Giants in their first home game since Jan. 1.

“I’m going to do everything I can to be out there,” Watt said.

“Hopefully I can play tomorrow.”

Watt has missed the past six games due to the injury.

He missed five games in 2016 with a torn patellar tendon and missed five with a fractured fibula in his left knee.
