J.J. Watt limps off, after Whitney Mercilus leaves game

The Chiefs just went on a long drive that ended with a field goal, but the story of this one so far has been injuries.

Texans defensive end J.J. Watt had to be helped off the field, after athletic trainers were checking his left knee.

The former defensive player of the year is being examined in the tent on the sidelines, and he’s the second departure of the night for the Texans. He was carted to the locker room for further examination.

Outside linebacker Whitney Mercilus is out with a chest injury suffered earlier in the long drive.

The game was held up when Chiefs safety Steven Terrell was injured on the opening kickoff.

He was kicked in the head during the play, and went down face-first. Players knelt around as he was treated, but he walked off the field under his own power moments later.

He was ruled out of the rest of the game with a concussion.

  1. JJ probably done for the year. Non contact injury probably tore something in knee or Achilles. No one to blame for hitting him, maybe they need new field wear players don’t get eaten up from the turf monster.

  2. If he wasn’t in tears, I was for him. God that looked awful I hope it’s a sprain, but I might be dreaming there. Even though ODB Is a punk, that was bad enough. Get well JJ. What sucks more is Billy O’Brien is building a NASTY team, but the guys keep getting brutal injuries. Hang in there Houston.

    Patriots fan.

  3. Hey Red… “Watt is an overrated bum. No other way to say it”

    Screw you! I suggest you not show up in Houston where JJ Watts raised $40,000,000 to help out his hometown folks.

  4. It looks like it’s Jacksonville’s division to lose now. Other teams have major injuries.

    Stupid comment as usual! Watt has done more on/off the field then any defender during his time.

    What he does off the field, while noble, is irrelevant. Fact remains guy can’t stay healthy and on the field.

    Ok. During the time he’s played on the field he’s been the most dominant defensive player in the league. Never missed a game in 6 years, then hurt his back. That hardly makes the “can’t stay healthy” list. And hos off the field work is noble and not irrelevant to the people he has helped.

  7. Of course that tylaw clown would make such a comment.. stay classy!!! Pffttttt
    Sucks to see such a great player go down like that.

    Richard Sherman is the dominant defensive player of his era. Watt is obviously breaking down, probably from PED abuse. At least he got paid before his career was over.

    Right, because press awards are the standard by which everything is judged, right? The fact that Suggs name is even on the list shows what a joke the award is. He was never even the best defensive player on his own team.

    Meanwhile, Sherman just continues to quietly dominate his 3rd of the field to the point nobody even takes a chance throwing at him anymore. And the Seahawks keep winning, while steroid man Watt’s short career is likely over.

    I guess adderall is safer?

    “As pointed out by Eric D. Williams of the Tacoma News Tribune, defensive end Bruce Irvin has become the sixth Seahawks player to test positive for performance enhancing drugs since 2011. The others are cornerback Brandon Browner, safety Winston Guy, offensive lineman John Moffitt, offensive lineman Allen Barbre, and cornerback Richard Sherman.”
