Watts (abdomen) will undergo surgery Thursday, Brooke Pryor of The Kansas City Star reports.
Watts went into Sunday's game against the Jaguars with a groin injury, and -- after breaking up a pass -- sustained a core muscle injury. The Texas A&M product will have surgery to repair it Thursday in Philadelphia. Watts was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
Watts left Sunday's game against the Jaguars with a groin issue and was unable to return. It turns out that his injury is quite serious, as Watts will miss at least eight weeks after being put on IR. Depending on the the severity of his injury, however, Watts is in jeopardy of missing the rest of the 2018 season.
Watts is questionable to return to Sunday's game with a groin injury, Brooke Pryor of The Kansas City Star reports.
Watts stepped into Sunday's action due to a plethora of injuries in the Kansas City secondary. The severity of Watts' injury is still unknown. If Watts can't return to Sunday's game that will leave the Chiefs with just two healthy safeties left.
The rookie fourth-round pick missed the first two days of training camp, and he'll need to capitalize on every opportunity to show he can hang. His 4.64 40-yard dash time is concerning as a safety, but Watts has impressive tackling ability, as he notched 87 tackles (10 for a loss) in his senior season at Texas A&M. Watts will have a chance to receive a hefty workload depending on how he progresses through preseason.
