HOUSTON — Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson may be out for the remainder of the season after suffering a non-contact injury during practice Thursday.

According to reports, Watson tore an ACL.


This is just more bad news for the Texans, after both JJ Watt and Whitney Mercilus’ seasons were cut short due to injuries.

Watson has been bringing much excitement to the games for fans, exhibiting powerful plays as a rookie NFL quarterback. The team has averaged 34 points in his six starts and 39 in the last five games. The rookie has thrown for 19 touchdowns which is an NFL record for most TD passes in the first seven games of a career. Watson was named AFC’s Offensive Player of the Month for October.

In his absence, Tom Savage will serve as quarterback when the Texans host the Colts this Sunday November 5.
