J.J. Watt injures elbow but says “you can cut it off and still play” –



Texans defensive end J.J. Watt injured his right elbow in Sunday’s victory over the Jaguars, but Watt insists he will be good to go for the postseason.

With 1:46 remaining until halftime, Watt sacked Blake Bortles for an 8-yard loss and forced a fumble the Jaguars recovered. Watt wore a brace on his elbow after that.

He will undergo further medical testing Monday.

“On the sack-fumble, my arm just got jacked up in a couple different directions,” Watt said, via Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. “X-ray was fine. I’ll get it checked out a little bit more tomorrow.

“You can cut it off and still play.”

The Texans won the AFC South on Sunday by holding the Jaguars to 119 total yards in a 20-3 win. Watt had 1.5 sacks, four tackles, a quarterback hit and a forced fumble.
