Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt sustained a shoulder injured on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders. Watts went to the locker room with about 5 ½ minutes left in the second quarter after spending a few minutes in the medical tent. The team announced just before the start of the second half that he wouldn’t return, but they did not specify which shoulder he injured.
After the game, Texans head coach Bill O’Brien told reporters Watt was sent to the hospital to get an MRI. League sources are saying that Watt’s injury could potentially cost him the remainder of the 2019-20 season, as he is believed to have suffered a torn pectoral muscle.
Watt had three tackles, a tackle for a loss and a pass defended before he left the game. Watt has four sacks this season.
