Watt (knee) recorded two tackles, both solo, a sack and a pass defensed across 63 snaps in Sunday's loss to the Colts. Watt was limited early in the week as he continues to nurse a lingering knee injury. However, he hasn't been slowed down on Sundays, as he now has 12 sacks on the season -- tying him for third-highest total in the league.
Watt (knee) was listed as a limited participant during Tuesday's walkthrough. Watt has been dealing with a knee injury for nearly three weeks, though it has yet to keep him out of a game. Barring a setback, expect Watt to be his usual self against the Jets on Saturday.
Watt had two tackles, a sack, two quarterback hits and one pass defensed in a 24-21 loss to the Colts in Week 14. Watt had been on the injury list with a knee injury that had bothered him the last two weeks. He said he felt much better preparing for the Colts than he had the week prior, and it showed in his production. Watt now has 12.5 sacks, the fifth time he's reached double digits in his career.
Watt (knee) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Colts, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. The knee injury might explain why Watt was limited to one tackle and no sacks in last week's 29-13 win over the Browns, but he was also listed with the same issue ahead of the Week 13 victory over the Titans and erupted for 1.5 sacks and nine tackles. His knee is probably less of a concern this week than the tricky matchup against an excellent offensive line. Of course, Watt did have two sacks and two forced fumbles in the first meeting between these teams Sept. 30.
Watt said his knee is "doing well," Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Watt showed up on Wednesday's injury report as limited -- the second straight week he's been on it -- but he feels the knee is better this week than it was Week 13 when he was questionable against the Browns. He recorded just two tackles and did not register a sack in last week's win over Cleveland. "It's doing well," Watt said. "Last week it just needed a little bit of rest but it's doing well. It's having a good day [Wednesday]." Watt projects optimism as he prepares for Week 14 against Indianapolis.
