Deshaun Watson Torn ACL: Quarterback Suffers Non-Contact Injury

Weekly fantasy podcast

On his Fox Sports Radio show Friday, Clay Travis said Houston Texans owner Bob McNair missed out on changing the perception that he is a "racist pariah" by not signing Colin Kaepernick to replace Deshaun Watson, the rookie phenom who tore his ACL in practice Thursday. The team is having lots of bad luck this season as lot of players are out with injury, including star defensive end J.J. Watt.

The injury occurred mid-practice and was a non-contact play.

Although Watson and Beckham are both out for the rest of the 2017 season, both players are expected to return healthy in 2018.

USA sets final tariffs on softwood lumber from Canada
The duties will push lumber prices even higher, so the biggest impact may be on American builders and new homeowners. The U.S. industry wants Canada to limit its share of the U.S. softwood lumber market strictly below a set level.

In Watson's latest game against the Seattle Seahawks, he completed 19 of 30 passes for 402 yards with four touchdowns and three interceptions in a close game that saw the Seahawks come back in the fourth quarter to win, 41-38. Earlier Thursday he was named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month and the AFC Offensive Player of the Month for October.

The injury is bad news for the Texans, whose offense was thriving with Watson at quarterback. The Texans signed Brock Osweiler to a $72 million contract before last season, but he was benched before the season was over and shipped to the Cleveland Browns in the offseason. Lattimore is the 11th overall pick of the 2017 draft.

However, O'Brien has no concerns over Savage's elevation back into the starting role.

Watson was injured on the same day that he was named the AFC's Offensive Player of the Month, marking the first time in National Football League history that a rookie quarterback had ever been given that honor.

Now with his brilliant season cut short, the Texans will look to Savage to salvage this injury-filled year and try to reach the playoffs for the third straight season.
