Deshaun Watson out for season with torn ACL

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

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

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson has torn his ACL and will be out for the rest of the season, according to ESPN.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien did not talk about any issues regarding Watson's knee during his Thursday news conference. 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.

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

The performance helped make him the first rookie quarterback to ever win AFC Offensive Player of the Month honors on Thursday. He also was named the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Month of October. Savage was benched midway through the Texans' Week 1 loss to the Jaguars. Watson is tied with Carson Wentz for most touchdowns this season, completing 61.8% of his passes with a 103 passer rating.

See how Twitter reacted to Watson's torn ACL. The 22-year-old added 21 carries for 145 yards and a rushing touchdown. But he nearly certainly won't replace the prowess that Watson had just started to show in his first seven National Football League games.
