Watt told ESPN's Lisa Salters during Arizona's second preseason game that he was ready to return to the field, adding that the team had been taking his recovery slowly to prevent further injury.Watt played all 16 games last season for the Houston Texans, recording five sacks, 14 tackles for loss, 17 quarterback hits, seven passes defended and an interception.
