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.
