In a crushing blow to the Houston Texans, Deshaun Watson, the team's record-setting rookie quarterback, sustained a torn anterior cruciate ligament in practice on Thursday and is most likely out for the remainder of the season.
Watson on Thursday tore an ACL during Thursday's practice and is done for the season, the NFL Network reported. Subsequent reports said an MRI confirmed the injury. With this knee injury to Watson, Tom Savage will now presumably step back into the starting role.

Markelle Fultz ruled out indefinitely with shoulder injury
According to the Sixers , there's no structural damage to Fultz's shoulder, and he visited "several shoulder specialists". It's a big setback for the Sixers top pick whos truggled in four games this season averaging 6 points and 1.8 assists.
In 2017, Watson has completed 126 out of 204 passes for 1,699 yards with 19 passing touchdowns and 8 interceptions for a passer rating of 103.0. His touchdown pass total is the most by a rookie in a calendar month in National Football League history with Dan Marino throwing 11 in October of 1983. ACL tear recoveries can vary in length, and it's hard to predict at this early juncture.
The Texans signed quarterback Matt McGloin to fill the roster vacancy. He has also picked up 269 yards on 36 carries and scored two touchdowns on the ground.
