This star-crossed NFL season lost one of its leading characters Thursday when Deshaun Watson tore his right ACL at Texans practice. For this injury to come days after Watson lit up the Seattle sky with 38 points and hours after the Astros brought Houston a World Series championship feels too cruel. The Football Gods are in a particularly merciless mood in 2017.
In the span of a month, J.J. Watt, Odell Beckham Jr., Aaron Rodgers and Watson have all suffered serious injuries. Andrew Luck, who has not played since undergoing shoulder surgery in January, was officially ruled out for the season Thursday. Perhaps the best running back in the league, David Johnson, was lost before that. Watson’s breakout game in New England back in Week 3 was a shot of caffeine for a Texans franchise that has spent its history looking for a quarterback to love. His four games after the loss to the Patriots, cresting with one of the games of the year in Seattle in Week 8, showed that something special was happening.
Watson’s 19 touchdowns led the NFL and broke Kurt Warner’s record for the most touchdown passes
