Houston Texans rookie sensation Deshaun Watson suffers season-ending injury

Deshaun Watson Torn ACL: Quarterback Suffers Non-Contact Injury

Watson was injured on the same day that he was named the AFC's Offensive Player of the Month, marking the first time in National Football League history that a rookie quarterback had ever been given that honor. The Houston Chronicle is reporting he tore the ligament in his right knee. After the rookie's injury, Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham, who's also out for the season due to an injury, made a decision to send a motivational text to Watson. 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. But, he is a person who has had some setbacks in his life, and always comes back stronger.

That performance helped make him become the first rookie quarterback to ever win AFC Offensive Player of the Month honour.

Watson will reportedly undergo surgery, which should lead to an eight to nine-month rehab process.

Watson was on a tear heading into Week 9, throwing for 1,699 yards with 19 touchdowns and 8 interceptions - a 103 quarterback rating - and the Texans were starting to look like the best offense in the NFL. The quarterback went down on a non-contact drill while running a read option play on the team's grass practice field, as ESPN's Adam Schefter reported.

"Today, the journey back seems far but I've been here before and I'll conquer it once again", Watson wrote. Under his guidance, the Texans had scored 30 or more points in five straight games to set a franchise record. He has the resolve.

Reaction to Watson's injury spread throughout the sports world on Thursday evening.
