HOUSTON, Texas – On the same day he was named NFL Offensive Player of the Month for October, and one day after his city’s baseball team won its first World Series, Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson reportedly tears his ACL in practice. The injury will cost him the rest of the 2017 season.

Since taking over for Tom Savage as Houston’s starting QB, Watson has thrown 19 touchdown passes and just eight interceptions while throwing for 1,699 yards. The rookie was selected in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft after leading Clemson to the national title last season.

Watson is the latest NFL star to be lost for the season, joining a list that includes Aaron Rodgers, J.J. Watt, Odell Beckham, Junior and others.
