In describing how he felt after the game he said, "We got the 'W.' It was just another day at the office". He's a gamer and didn't miss time, but he did walk into to blue injury tent on the sideline at one point and when he took the field for overtime, he was shacking off injury.

A report from the Houston Chronicle Tuesday said Watson was day-to-day with a chest injury. He also took four hits on the run in Week 4 against the Colts.

Watson has completed 65.1 percent of his passes and thrown eight touchdowns along with five interceptions in five games this season.

Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said he and the coaching staff constantly work with Watson to make sure he is not putting himself in a risky situation with the hits he's taking, but acknowledged that his quarterback is "a great competitor".

The Scotsman hopes W Series helps women break the "glass ceiling" they often encounter in the current racing pyramid. The victor of the category will earn $500,000 to help fund her next step up the racing ladder to F1.

Asked directly if he expected to play against the Bills, he said, "For sure". "He's trying to help his team win. We understand that, so we're going to work hard to try to improve that".

With Watson's status for Sunday still up in the air, sportsbooks have yet to open a Bills-Texans betting line as they wait for more clarity regarding the quarterback's health.

"I feel good. I feel great", Watson said. "I've been sore plenty of times".
