Emotional J.J. Watt suffers serious leg injury: Out for the season

The Houston Texans took a significant hit to their defense in Sunday's 42-34 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Star defensive end J.J. Watt suffered a tibial plateau fracture in his left leg on the first drive.

The Texans' star defensive lineman was visibly upset as he was helped off the field grimacing in pain on Sunday night. Reports state that Watt is out for the season and will be placed on injured reserve.

"I don't have a ton of information on it, but I feel terrible for the guy," Houston coach Bill O'Brien said after the game. "With that being said, knowing him and knowing the type of guy he is, he's an amazing human being, he's an amazing human being' and he will work extremely hard to be back, to be back to play for his football team. I know that."

This is the second consecutive year that Watt was been ruled out for the year before Houston's bye. The All-Pro missed 13 games last season with a back injury.
