Deshaun Watson was on the verge of breaking all kinds of rookie records, taking the Houston Texans to the playoffs, and probably winning NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. That has all come to a screeching halt as Watson has suffered a torn ACL in a non-contact drill.
Watson will need to get season-ending surgery on his knee and that will put him on the shelf until next season. His first campaign as the Texans’ starting quarterback had been going extremely well, as Watson had thrown for 1,699 yards and 19 touchdowns with only eight interceptions. He threw 16 touchdowns in the month of October alone.
Deshaun Watson went down on a normal drill, running a read option, on a grass field, per source. Didn’t yell, trainers took him off field.

Will Watson continue his stellar QB play next season?
