Watson left the field before the half-hour mark and after the match Edinburgh head coach Richard Cockerill explained that the injury did not look too good.
“It looks like he may well have broken his hand,” Cockerill told BBC Scotland.
“We don’t know yet, we will have to see.”
The 27-year-old Watson has been in fine form for Scotland over the last two seasons and his potential absence will be a major blow for Townsend’s team during this year’s Six Nations tournament.
