Texans fear QB Deshaun Watson has a torn ACL, heading for MRI to confirm

Sources: Texans QB fear Deshaun Watson suffered a torn ACL in practice today. A non-contact injury. MRI coming to confirm.

Update: Adam Schefter tweeted, "Deshaun Watson did tear his ACL, per source. Tests on-site revealed tear."

Fantasy Impact: 

Terrible break for Watson who was having a great rookie season. As we await word about the MRI, owners will need to plan for the worst. Senior Editor John Paulsen listed Tyrod Taylor, Jared Goff, Josh McCown and Jacoby Brissett as his favorite Sneaky Starts of the week. Tom Savage would also be a decent spot start given a great matchup against the Colts, though he wasn't impressive early in the season. Watson owners should make sure that they have a quarterback on the roster for Week 9 because even if it's just a knee sprain, he's likely to miss this week at the very least.
