Texans QB Deshaun Watson Believed to Have Torn ACL in Practice

Texans QB Deshaun Watson Believed to Have Torn ACL in Practiceā€¯

The Houston Texans feared that rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson suffered a torn ACL in practice on Thursday, and those fears have been confirmed, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien did not talk about any issues regarding Watson's knee during his Thursday news conference. Whether or not that's the case, though, remains to be seen in the coming days since this injury occurred. The team only listed Watson as limited after the practice session. He saw his most National Football League action in 2013 with the Raiders when he passed for 1,547 yards, 8 touchdowns and 8 interceptions.

With Watson out for the Texans, Tom Savage takes over starting quarterback duties for the Texans, starting with Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts.

The NFL named Watson the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month and AFC Offensive Player of the Month.

The rookie QB played with a torn ACL in his freshman year at Clemson, but this injury appears to be beyond that. It's unclear if the Texans will add another quarterback to the team. He passed for 1,699 yards and rushed for 269 more and two scores.

Watson was the only quarterback with a passer rating above 100.0 in all of his four games in October.
