  • Texans' Deshaun Watson: ACL surgery goes as expected
    By RotoWire Staff

    Watson (knee) underwent successful surgery Wednesday to repair his right ACL, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Doctors detected no additional ligament damage beyond the ACL tear while performing the procedure, so Watson's recovery timetable is expected to remain at 8-to-9 months. The rookie quarterback was enjoying a star-making campaign prior to suffering the injury in practice last week, but the Texans fully expect Watson to return to form by the start of the 2018 season. The knee surgery was the second of Watson's career; he previously required a procedure during his freshman year of college to repair a torn left ACL.

    Watson is slated to undergo season-ending surgery after tearing his right ACL during Thursday's practice, Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports. Watson, who tore the ACL in his left knee as a freshman at Clemson in 2014, is expected to make a full recovery in time for the 2018 season, though he does face a rehab period estimated in the 7-to-9 month range, per Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. With Watson's spectacular rookie season derailed by the injury, Tom Savage is slated to start at quarterback for the Texans on Sunday against the Colts. Meanwhile, the team plans to add fellow signal callers Matt McGloin and T.J. Yates to bolster its depth behind Savage. The jarring loss of Watson represents a major hit to the Texans offense down the stretch, with wideouts DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller especially impacted by the team's looming quarterback transition.

  • It has been confirmed that Watson tore his ACL on Thursday, both Adam Schefter of ESPN and Mike Garafolo of NFL Network report. We'll await official word from the Texans, but Watson is now on track to miss the remainder of the season, with Tom Savage -- who was replaced by Watson in team's season opener -- set to reclaim the team's starting QB assignment. Watson's brilliant rookie campaign thus comes to a sudden halt, with the Clemson product having tossed 19 TDs versus eight picks through seven games. His absence down the stretch represents a major hit to the Texans offense, with wideouts DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller especially affected by Thursday's unfortunate turn of events.

  • Texans' Deshaun Watson: Possible torn ACL
    By RotoWire Staff

    There are fears that Watson suffered a torn ACL during Thursday's practice, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Per the report, Watson suffered a non-contact injury Thursday, with an MRI on tap to determine the extent of his knee injury. If an ACL tear is confirmed, Watson would be done for the season, which would set the stage for Tom Savage to reclaim the Texans' starting QB job.

  • Watson completed 19 of 30 pass attempts for 402 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions Sunday against the Seahawks. He also gained 67 yards on eight carries in the 41-38 loss. Watson was the beneficiary of some huge plays in this one, including touchdown passes of 59 and 72 yards to Will Fuller and DeAndre Hopkins, respectively. He also gashed Seattle as a runner, averaging 8.4 yards per carry as he tied his career high in rushing yards. Unfortunately, Watson also turned the ball over three times, including a pick-six by Earl Thomas in the first quarter and an interception by Richard Sherman as he tried to put his team in position to kick the tying field goal. Still, the incredibly productive start to Watson's career continued, as he set the NFL rookie record for touchdown passes through the first seven games. Already a Rookie of the Year frontrunner, he'll face a favorable matchup against the Colts in Week 9.
