No 'additional damage' found in Texans' Deshaun Watson's knee during ACL surgery

No 'additional damage' found in Texans' Deshaun Watson's knee during ACL surgery”

It's been a little less than a week since one of the most impressive starts to an National Football League career came screeching to a halt when Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson tore his ACL during a practice.

The Texans are 3-4 this season, one game behind the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans in the AFC South. Tom Savage will take over as Houston's starting quarterback in Week 9 against the Indianapolis Colts.

The surgery was done by Dr. Walter Lowe, the Texans team physician, and top ACL surgeon. Schefter added the injury occurred during a normal read-option drill.

Watson played with a torn ACL in his freshman year at Clemson, but this injury appears to be more severe.

Watson had thrown 16 touchdown passes in October alone, breaking Hall of Famer Dan Marino's 1983 National Football League rookie record for most TD passes in a calendar month.

In seven games, Watson threw for 1,699 yards, 19 touchdowns and eight interceptions, while rushing for 269 yards and two scores.
