Deshaun Watson Injury: Texans Reportedly Fear QB Suffered Torn ACL In Practice

A non-contact injury. MRI coming to confirm.

Houston traded up from No. 25 to select Watson with the No. 12 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. Watson was listed as a limited participant in practice with a knee injury.

Watson had his best game yet in Week 8 as he dueled with Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks.

The NFL named Watson the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month and AFC Offensive Player of the Month. He is tied for the National Football League lead in passing touchdowns (19) with the Philadelphia Eagles' Carson Wentz, while Houston leads the National Football League in scoring with 30.7 points per game.

The Texans will have to sign another quarterback to back up Savage. ACL tear recoveries can vary in length, and it's hard to predict at this early juncture. Watson also suffered a sprained knee against Georgia Tech before the game against SC was told that with a brace securing the knee, Watson could continue to play without risking additional damage. He has also picked up 269 yards on 36 carries and scored two touchdowns on the ground.

Watson was the only quarterback with a passer rating above 100.0 in all of his four games in October.
