Houston QB Deshaun Watson out for the season

He led NFL QBs in rushing yards and was tied for first with 19 touchdowns in the air.

The 12th overall pick this year out of Clemson, Watson has been starting for Houston since Week 2. He also noted that Watson has had setbacks in his life and "always comes back stronger". "Since he went through the rehab before, he knows what it takes", Swinney said. He can at least look toward 2018 as a chance to build off what was an eye-opening rookie season.


The injury occurred mid-practice and was a non-contact play. But he nearly certainly won't replace the prowess that Watson had just started to show in his first seven National Football League games. He passed for 402 yards and four touchdowns in the Texans' 41-38 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in one of the most exciting games of the season. He's only completed 58.1 percent of his passes along with six touchdowns, eight touchdowns and a quarterback rating of 72.8 during his career. He also won the Davey O'Brien Award, which is presented to the nation's best quarterback, both years. From the start, the Jaguars controlled the game and by the half were leading 19-0.

The Clemson head coach then went on to say, "All he did after the injury in 2014 was come back and lead us to the National Championship game twice and of course we won it past year".


"All he did after the injury in 2014 was come back and lead us to the national championship game twice and of course we won it a year ago". He has the resolve.
