The heart and pride of Houston, J.J. Watt, went down Sunday night with an apparent leg injury against the Chiefs. That leg injury will now reportedly sideline the Texans star for the entire rest of the season.
#Texans JJ Watt, who the team just announced has a tibial plateau fracture, is out for the season, source said. Another year ended on IR.

Watt was carted off the field into a stadium X-Ray room, then taken to a local hospital to be further elevated. There, doctors were able to diagnose Watt with a tibial plateau fracture.
Watt missed almost all but three games of the 2016 season due to injury.
