Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson out for year with torn ACL

NFL awards keep piling up for rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson

NFL awards keep piling up for rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson

Watson is feared to have to torn his ACL after suffering a non-contact injury in Thursday's practice, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

For the season, Watson has passed for 1,699 yards and 19 touchdowns and rushed for 269 yards and a pair of scores.

Watson will undergo an MRI to reveal the extent of the injury.

Watson apparently went down on a normal drill in which he was running the read option.

The request also covers four other dismissed Catalan ministers who did not show up. Puigdemont fled to Belgium on Monday.

Watson, the outstanding rookie who took the NFL and fantasy football world by storm in 2017, tore his ACL, ending his season. Watson threw for 402 yards with four touchdowns, a performance so awe-inspiring that Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman later said it was the best quarterback performance the Seahawks defense has ever seen. He joined Barry Sanders (1989), Edgerrin James (1999), Mike Anderson (2000) and Kareem Hunt (2017) as the only rookies to win the league's player of the month award.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Month for October. Savage was benched midway through the Texans' Week 1 loss to the Jaguars.

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.
