Texans fear QB Deshaun Watson may have torn ACL

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson sustained a season-ending knee injury in practice on Thursday, two people familiar with the situation told The Associated Press. Not only is this a tremendous blow to the Texans' season, but it is also a blow to Watson's fantasy owners as well as the owners of Houston pass-catchers, primarily DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller.

Former Clemson star and current Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson was honored for his play in the month of October on Thursday. Subsequent reports said an MRI confirmed the injury.

Watson had been one of the game's best quarterbacks this season, his first in the league. Watson was listed as a limited participant in practice with a knee injury.

Watson was coming off the most impressive performance of his young career before suffering the injury.

The news comes on the same day Watson was named NFL Offensive Player of the Month, NFL Rookie of the Month, and NFL Offensive Player of the Week.

One of the NFL's most electrifying rookies may be out for the rest of the year.

Tom Savage is the only other quarterback on the Texans' roster. The 22-year-old added 21 carries for 145 yards and a rushing touchdown. Watson left the game twice, including an early trip to the locker room at the end of the first half, but returned each time.
