J.J. Watt: elbow injury will ‘be fine by Saturday’

Texans defensive end J.J. Watt isn’t concerned about his availability for Saturday’s wild card game against the Colts despite suffering an elbow injury in Week 17. “It’s doing OK,” Watt said of the injury Tuesday, via Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. “It’ll be fine by Saturday.”

Fantasy Impact

Watt injured the elbow in the first half of last Sunday’s win over the Jaguars but returned to the game. He wore a brace on the elbow during the second half. He was listed as a limited participant for Tuesday’s walkthrough practice and doesn’t appear to be in any danger of missing Saturday’s playoff game. Watt finished the regular season with 16 sacks, his most since the 2015 season.
