(NFL) A powerful J.J. Watt immediately went down at the end of the game’s opening drive between the Texans and Chiefs. The Texans announced that he has a tibial plateau fracture which means he’s done for the season.
Looks as if Watt wasn’t able to put any weight on his left leg as he walked to the sideline, and while he was on the ground after going down, he was being checked for a possible ACL or MCL injury.
He was then taken to the locker room on a cart after being examined in a tent on the sideline. It was reported that Watt had to hold his left leg over the side of the cart because other positions were too painful.
He was on crutches as he went to an ambulance to take him to the hospital from the stadium.
Not only did The Houston Texans lose Watt, the Texans also lost linebacker Whitney Mercilus, who is done for the game with a chest injury.
