Texans' JJ Watt suffers tibial plateau fracture against Chiefs

Share

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. His recovery timetable was uncertain, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. He only played in three games in 2016 because of a back injury. Dallas receiver Dez Bryant suffered a tibial plateau fracture past year and missed three games.

Watt fell to the ground after being blocked but not having any contact with the knee. He was helped off the field, then carted into the locker room and taken to the hospital for examination.

Bradford returning to action is great news for the Vikings, who now own a 2-2 overall record. Keenum can be hit-or-miss, it just depends on how the defense plays him.

It is tough luck for the Texans defensive end, who missed all but three games last season after undergoing two back surgeries. Twice the league's leading sack man throughout his career, Watt has gone the first five games of the 2017 season without totaling a sack of an opposing quarterback.

NBC Sports reported that Texans linebacker Whitney Mercilus is also out with a chest injury.
