But, according to the Texans' official website, Watt did not confirm if his surgery would repair his injured groin.
"Not 100 percent sure, but we'll get it diagnosed tomorrow and I'll have surgery on Tuesday and take it from there," Watt said, per the team's website.
All signs point to his groin. Head coach Bill O'Brien called Watt's knock a "significant groin injury" and Watt added that he aggravated the injury six or seven weeks ago, which means he's been dealing with a groin injury and a broken hand for the past month or so.
"Our training staff has done a great job of just getting me out there on the field so I can play," Watt said. "Yesterday was kind of the breaking point so a lot of credit to our training staff. They've done an unbelievable job."
Despite the injuries, Watt finished the season atop the sack leaderboard with 17.5, winning his second career sack title.
