On Sunday, the Houston Texans got a win against the Oakland Raiders in a tough AFC South battle. En route to their win, the Texans lost a key player in JJ Watt. After the game, it was confirmed that Watt has suffered a torn pectoral; ending his season.
With the team heading towards November, this is a big hit to the defense. Over the next few weeks, Houston will see opponents in Jacksonville, Baltimore, Indianapolis, and New England.
With Watt having an injury history, this is a tough blow for him. In 2016, he only played three games due to back surgery. The following year, Watt only played in five games due to a tibial plateau fracture in his left leg.
