You Can’t Help But Feel Bad for Deshaun Watson

This has been one of the most injury-plagued NFL seasons that I can remember. Stars like JJ Watt, Odell Beckham Jr., Andrew Luck, Aaron Rodgers, Julian Edelman, Eric Berry, David Johnson and now Deshaun Watson have all gone down with a season-endingΒ injury.

For Watson, he suffered a torn ACL during a non-contact drill in practice. To come all this way, prove all of his doubters wrong, take the starting job from Tom Savage, and look like a damn MVP candidate halfway through the season just to get hurt in practice, man that really sucks.

By no means am I a Texans fan, but I am a football fan. Watson was so fun to watch in college and he carried that electric, mobile style of play to the NFL. This was something not many scouts believed he could do. Seeing a kid with such a bright future go down like that this early in his career is just hard to watch. Adding him to the list of other stars to go down this year is really bad for football.

From what I’ve seen on Twitter, Watson has plenty of support:

Hopefully, he can make a full recovery and get back to that same level of play next year. The league needs young stars like him on the field every week.
