Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson tore ACL in practice

03 November 2017

Deshaun Watson, the Houston Texans' rookie quarterback, is feared to have suffered a season-ending ligament injury.

Deshaun Watson's stellar rookie season may be over. The wording from Rapoport leaves open the smallest window for optimism, but if the Texans' worries are confirmed, Watson would surely be out for the year. He suffered the injury on a non-contact play. Watson got up and walked before his knee was looked at, though he didn't finish practice.

The injury comes less than a week after Watson's best game of his young season.

To this point in his debut campaign, Watson has thrown for 1,699 yards, 19 touchdowns and eight interceptions.

The NFL named Watson the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month and AFC Offensive Player of the Month.

He also led Clemson to consecutive College Football Playoff National Championship games, beating Alabama in his junior campaign before declaring for the draft.

Now, Houston will turn to backup Tom Savage this week. ACL tear recoveries can vary in length, and it's hard to predict at this early juncture. He passed for 1,699 yards and rushed for 269 more and two scores. He was 7/13 passing for just 62 yards in the first half of the opener before Watson took over.
