JJ Watt Carted to Locker Room With Apparent Left Leg Injury

JJ Watt Carted to Locker Room With Apparent Left Leg Injury”

Watt was rushing Alex Smith and his leg twisted.

Watt was visibly emotional as medical staff examined him.

Watt was later ruled out for the game, joining Whitney Mercilus who was also injured on Kansas City's opening drive. After a short while, Watt was shown hopping to the cart to go back to the locker room.

One thing the Houston Texans didn't want to see was star defensive player J.J. Watt going down with an injury. Though he did not register a sack in his first four games of the season, Watt led all Houston defenders entering Sunday night in total pressures (11) and peessure percentage (9.7 percent); Mercilus was fourth with three pressures. He has been ruled out for the rest of the game. It's a chest injury for Mercilus, according to NBC's Michelle Tafoya.

What does this mean for the Texans? The Chiefs offense has been hard to stop, and Alex Smith is difficult to contain. What makes this even more heartbreaking is the context of how important Watt has been to the Houston community in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

Watt missed 13 games last season with a back injury.
