  • Texans' Deshaun Watson Is Said to Have Torn ACL

According to Dan Gartland of Sports Illustrated, as first reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter, Houston Texans Deshaun Watson's rookie season has come to an sudden end after the quarterback tore his ACL in practice. One of the best and most fun stories in the league this year, Watson was coming off a tough but thrilling loss in Seattle and literally hours earlier had been named NFC Offensive Player of the Month for October. After the rookie's injury, Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham, who's also out for the season due to an injury, chose to send a motivational text to Watson.

Swinney said in a statement he spoke with Watson late Thursday afternoon about the disappointing news.

"Look back in life to when you faced adversity and thought you would not overcome it, and then you did".

Watson has been outstanding since taking over as the Texans starter in Week Two, and has played in six games, winning three and throwing for 1597 yards, completing 18 touchdown passes and running in two more. "Since he went through the rehab before, he knows what it takes", Swinney said.

"This is so similar to the 2014 season, his freshman year at Clemson".

The injury occurred mid-practice and was a non-contact play. The 19 touchdowns are a record for a player in his first seven games, and he has two rushing touchdowns in addition to that total. Watson was on pace to throw 43 touchdown passes in 2017, which would've given him one of the top-eight single-season performances of all-time. "I have no doubt he will come back from this".
