J.J. Watt ruled out with knee injury

The Texans didn’t need any more bad news, but they got what could be a crushing blow to a team and a city.

Defensive end J.J. Watt has already been ruled out for the rest of the night with a left knee injury.

Watt had to be helped off the field, and was carted to the locker room.

For the team to rule him out so quickly suggests the news was obvious. He’ll almost certainly be having an MRI soon, as they try to determine if the injury is as serious as it looks.

The Texans have also lost outside linebacker Whitney Mercilus to a chest injury, but Watt would represent more than a football loss. He raised more than $37 million for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, which transcended all his (numerous) football accomplishments.

  1. They finally have an offense and now their top defensive players start going down. This team must be jinxed and it was probably those letterman jackets that did it.

  2. Good guy! Wish all those guys taking a knee would look at what he’s done and say; “maybe we would try what JJ does, and stop creating division”…

    Wish all those guys criticizing legitimate protesting would look at those guys taking a knee and say; “maybe the police should stop murdering innocent American citizens in the streets”

  4. This season isn’t going well for the NFL. A ton of injuries, players showing disrespect during anthem, ratings down, and a bunch below average teams playing with a couple actual good ones.

    Which rarely happens and happens less to blacks than whites. But why let facts stop you.

    yep

    let us hope it is enough to bury goodell

  8. Gotta feel for him and that fan base. It seems like he’s been in a downward spiral during the last two years with injuries. Comes with age. Some guys just don’t hold up past their early 20’s. See: Gronk.

  9. Without these injuries he’d probably be over 100 career sacks after his 7th season. Phenomenal player
