NFL Players Were Heartbroken By Deshaun Watson's Torn ACL

A non-contact injury. MRI coming to confirm.

Word came down on Thursday afternoon that the Houston Texans' star rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson suffered a torn ACL during practice.

He has collected a sack in all eight contests this season, tying a franchise record for consecutive games with a sack held by Jim Marshall (1969) and Jared Allen (2011). The wording from Rapoport leaves open the smallest window for optimism, but if the Texans' worries are confirmed, Watson would surely be out for the year.

With Watson out for the Texans, Tom Savage takes over starting quarterback duties for the Texans, starting with Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Watson had his best game yet in Week 8 as he dueled with Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks.

Watson has thrown more touchdown passes (19) in his first seven games than anyone in National Football League history.

The Georgia native was also named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month for October.

See how Twitter reacted to Watson's torn ACL. It's unclear if the Texans will add another quarterback to the team. Watson left the game twice, including an early trip to the locker room at the end of the first half, but returned each time.
