HOUSTON -- After the Texans win over Jacksonville Sunday, defensive end J.J. Watt appeared to be favoring his right arm.

Watt said after the game that he hurt it during a sack and fumble of Blake Bortles in the first half.

The good news is X-rays were negative. Watt said he would get it checked out more during the week. More good news – the injury won't keep him from playing next weekend.

“It’s playoff football now,” he said. “It doesn’t matter. You can cut it off. I’ll still play.”
