For J.J Watt, 2018 can’t come soon enough.

That's not to say the four-time Pro Bowler hasn't stayed busy during his injury layoff. Since suffering a broken leg in Week 5, Watt raised more than $37 million in relief funds following the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey, an effort Watt says he was "honored" to play a part in.

But when it comes to football, there’s only one thing on his mind.

“All of us guys, all we want to do is get back on the field," Watt told USA TODAY Sports, speaking ahead of being honored at the 2017 Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year Awards.
