Watt was added to the injury report, adding to an already depleted defense as Jadeveon Clowney will out for the game with an ankle injury.
Watt is the fourth player for the Texans (1-4) to become sick this week. Receiver Jaelen Strong, cornerback A.J. Bouye and practice squad quarterback Zac Dysert all missed practices. Strong also is questionable, while Bouye is listed as probable.
The @HoustonTexans have added DE J.J. Watt to the injury report with an illness. He is questionable for Sunday’s game vs. Jacksonville— Texans PR (@TexansPR) October 17, 2015
If Watt doesn't play, it would be the first missed game of his NFL career. Houston only has six sacks this season, and four of them are from Watt.
