Who is Deshaun Watson's backup on the Houston Texans?

Seattle Seahawks J.D. Mc Kissic jumps over New York Giants' Janoris Jenkins during the first half of an NFL football game Sunday Oct. 22 2017 in East Rutherford N.J

The Houston Texans look to have taken a devastating hit that could derail their season.

An MRI on the knee confirmed the full extent of the injury, Rapoport reported.

Watson went down on a non-contact injury, while running a read-option play, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. He threw for 402 yards with 4 touchdowns, but Houston lost the game in thefinal minutes.

Watson appeared to be cruising to the Offensive Rookie of the Year award for a Texans team in the playoff hunt, despite injuries to JJ Watt and Whitney Mercilus.

In 2017, Watson has completed 126 out of 204 passes for 1,699 yards with 19 passing touchdowns and 8 interceptions for a passer rating of 103.0. He has also picked up 269 yards on 36 carries and scored two touchdowns on the ground. Savage was benched midway through the Texans' Week 1 loss to the Jaguars.

The performance helped make him the first rookie quarterback to ever win AFC Offensive Player of the Month honors on Thursday.

Tom Savage is in line to start this weekend against the Colts, who announced Thursday that Andrew Luck will not play this season. He leads all quarterbacks this season with 21 touchdowns overall and has thrown four or more touchdown passes in three games this season to join Fran Tarkenton as the only rookies in National Football League history to do so.
