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 ailment in Week 13 when he erupted for 1.5 sacks and nine tackles against the Texans. His knee is probably less of a concern 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.
Watt (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
Watt was able to play through his lingering knee injury during Sunday's win over the Browns, which bodes well for his Week 14 availability. The star defensive end has yet to miss a game this season, but his participation in practice Thursday and Friday will warrant monitoring.
Watt (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Browns.
Watt is probably running at less than full health while managing the knee injury, but even a compromised version of the defensive end can still be a game-wrecking force. He proved as much in the Texans' Week 12 win over the Titans, when he recorded nine tackles and 1.5 sacks and forced a fumble in the 34-17 triumph.
Watt (knee), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns, is likely to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The knee issue has been bothering Watt for nearly two weeks, but it doesn't appear to be anything that will prevent him from suiting up on gamedays or dramatically hinder his effectiveness. In fact, Watt turned in one of his best outings of the season in Monday's 34-17 win over the Texans, registering nine tackles, 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble.
