Texans' JJ Watt leaves game with knee injury

The Latest: Packers beat Cowboys on Rodgers' late TD pass JJ Watt suffered a scary knee injury during 'Sunday Night Football'

The 48-yard touchdown he threw to Will Fuller to narrow the Chiefs' lead to six points in the fourth quarter of Sunday Night Football is a great example of why that's the best idea for the Texans.

While injuries are never good news, it appeared that there was some hope with that particular injury diagnosis. Dallas receiver Dez Bryant suffered a tibial plateau fracture a year ago and missed three games. The Texans thrived without Watt last season, but his loss significantly lowers their 2017 ceiling.

However, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that Watt will miss the rest of the season. He was taken by ambulance to a local hospital.

There will likely be more of those going forward as the Bengals continue to give Mixon a large share of the snaps. Dre Kirkpatrick was ruled out with a shoulder injury, and Adam Jones was ruled out with a lower back injury.

The Texans also lost another key defensive player on their opening drive.

A few plays before Watt went down, linebacker Whitney Mercilus left the game with a chest injury. The injury is bad enough that one reporter says the defensive end will be out for the season.

The loss of Watt for the game means Carlos Watkins and Christian Covington need to make good on their potential and turn in impact snaps for the Texans.
