JJ Watt Helped Off Field After Suffering Leg Injury

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce pulls is a catch in front of Houston Texans free safety Andre Hal during the first half of an NFL football game Sunday Oct. 8 2017 in Houston

By Monday morning, it was behind them.

"I'm just going to keep fighting", Watson said. "Let's not get ahead of ourselves here". "Whatever route you go to get to it, that's what we try to do, and nothing less than that".

The Chiefs have cemented themselves as the best team in football. Has 8 games with 100+ rec. yards since 2016, tied for most in NFL.

The franchise record for rushing yards by a quarterback in a season in 308 by Carr in 2005. He was awesome, but the Texans defense was gashed without Watt and Mercilus. The way they played last week was a start. Since then, Kansas City has developed one of the most effective offenses in the NFL.

He has control of his side of the field, and he will make a fine target for Deshaun Watson.

Watt ended up being transported to the hospital during Sunday night's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, via an ambulance in order to undergo further testing. Notably, his "dead cap" number drops to a palatable $6 million after the 2017 season.

After Tom Savage started the season for the Houston Texans, it's now DeShaun Watson time behind center. "That's a good recipe for success in this league".

Last week, the Texans' defense absolutely confounded a Titans offense that was supposed to be one of the premiere scoring units in the AFC. But the 2-point conversion failed, leaving them down 23-13.

By Week 3, Watson was much more comfortable. However, this may be even more detrimental to the Texans than it would be for other rosters.

The result: Watson gained confidence on every snap. But the third-round draft pick is more than just the No. 1 rusher; he's also a reliable and explosive receiver out of the backfield. O'Brien has adapted elements of the offense to include read-option and quarterback draws to take advantage of Watson's skillset. According to the Houston Chronicle, he is due to undergo season-ending surgery to fix a torn pectoral muscle. Watson is 2-1 as a starter and consistently displaying all the tools that helped Clemson win the national title game a year ago and play for it twice.

CJ Fiedorowicz has signed a new contract with the #Houston Texans after they also gave an extension to Deandre Hopkins.

Local players to watch: Kansas City - WR De'Anthony Thomas (Oregon), CB Terrance Mitchell (Oregon), CB Kenneth Acker (Grant High School Generals).

A strong performance, a close call, a moral victory won't be enough. The Texans moved their record to 2-2 with the win. Houston made a huge statement last week, when they poured in 57 points against divisional rival Tennessee. The Chiefs also have a capable defense considering that they come into this weekend's contest ranking 11 in the National Football League in terms of points allowed.
