REPORT: DeShaun Watson Tears ACL During Practice

On a day where Houstonians are filled with joy celebrating their first World Series, their emotions are being taken for a roller coaster ride.

The Houston Texans fear that star rookie QB DeShaun Watson has tore his ACL during practice Thursday.

Watson suffered the injury on a non-contact play.

The Clemson alum is off to one of the most prolific starts to a career at quarterback in NFL history, leading the league’s highest scoring offense. The injury even comes on the day Watson was named AFC player of the month coming off a 400+, 4TD passing performance against one of the best defenses in the NFL. He is tied for the league lead in touchdown passes.

Week 1 starter Tom Savage will take back over quarterback duties for Sunday’s game against the Colts.

Watson will undergo surgery and miss the remainder of the season.
