Texans DE J.J. Watt (back) will miss 'an extended period of the time'

Texans DE J.J. Watt will have to wait until next season to make a serious run at an unprecedented fourth NFL Defensive Player of the Year award.

The league's dominant defensive force re-injured his back during Houston's Week 3 loss to the New England Patriots, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday, according to multiple sources with direct knowledge of the situation.

The Texans will be re-signing veteran defensive end Antonio Smith for depth, a source informed of the one-year agreement has told NFL.com's Mike Garofolo.

Watt is expected to be sidelined for an extended period of time, per Rapoport, perhaps even for the rest of the season. The Texans will likely place him on injured reserve Wednesday, Rapoport added, via a source informed of their plans. The hope is that he can return for a late-season playoff run.

Fantasy Impact:

This is clearly a serious blow to the Houston defense and makes the unit a better matchup for all skill position players on opposing teams.

Pats Beat: Team not planning to add another QB

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Patriots currently have no plans to bring in QB T.J. Yates.

As it currently stands, the availability of the Patriots' quarterbacks are all very much in question. Tom Brady is suspended for one more week. Jimmy Garoppolo is coming back from an AC joint sprain (timetable unclear). Jacoby Brissett reportedly sustained a thumb injury on his throwing hand during last week's game (though it looks like it doesn't require surgery).

This combination of factors has lead to the reasonable conclusion that the Patriots would likely be in the market for the services of a fill-in quarterback if either (or both) non-suspended QBs aren't able to play Sunday.

Fantasy Impact:

At least for the time being, it seems that the team is confident that either Garoppolo or Brissett is in good enough shape to take the job in Week 4. At 3-0, there probably isn't a lot of reason for the Pats to panic and make a big move. The story said Yates would be a leading candidate.
