  • J.J. Watt Out For Season With Fractured Leg

    Texans' J.J. Watt out for season from Sunday's injury

    HOUSTON -- Texans defensive end J.J. Watt is out for the season after he suffered a tibial plateau fracture in the team's 42-34 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, coach Bill O'Brien said Monday.

    Watt fell to the ground while engaged in a block on the Chiefs' opening drive. The veteran defensive end was helped to the sideline by the Texans training staff and was looked at in the sideline tent before being taken off on a cart. He was eventually taken to a hospital in an ambulance.

    On Monday morning, Watt tweeted to apologize to his teammates and the city of Houston.

    Watt, 28, missed the last 13 games of the 2016 regular season because of a back injury. He played in his first regular-season game since his September 2016 back surgery in this season's opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars. In four games, Watt had 13 tackles, but he did not have a sack.
