Houston QB Deshaun Watson out for the season

NFL Week 8 Recap Star-studded matchup between Deshaun Watson and Russell Wilson dominates headlines

The Injury apparently came in practice on Thursday and was suffered without contact to the rookie.

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. He started the season opener but was benched for Watson by halftime.

Watson is said to have gone down on a normal drill in which he was running the read option and he could face an eight to nine-month rehab process.

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.

Along with Barry Sanders, Edgerrin James, Mike Anderson and Kareem Hunt, Watson is among the only rookies to win the Offensive Player of the Month honor.

Despite using a high pick on Watson, the Texans made it clear that veteran Tom Savage would be the starter heading into training camp and the preseason. He leads all quarterbacks this season with 21 touchdowns overall and has thrown four or more touchdown passes in three games this season to join Fran Tarkenton as the only rookies in National Football League history to do so.
