  • Deshaun Watson Out For Season With Torn ACL

    Texans QB Deshaun Watson tears ACL in practice, done for season

    Houston Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson will have season-ending surgery after tearing an ACL during Thursday's practice, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

    Watson tore the ACL in his right knee, a source told ESPN's Chris Mortensen, confirming a Houston Chronicle report.

    The injury occurred about halfway through practice on a grass field; Watson appeared to trip or fall but did not yell, someone present at practice told Schefter. Watson got up and felt his knee before it was looked at, but the person said no one believed the injury was season-ending.

    Watson has helped make the Texans the highest-scoring team in the NFL, with 30.7 points per game. Last season, Houston ranked 28th in points.

    Watson's 19 touchdown passes are four more than the Texans quarterbacks (Brock Osweiler and Savage) combined for all of last season.
