Nov.03 - SportLand: Houston Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson will have season-ending surgery after tearing an ACL during Thursday's practice, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. No quarterback had a start to a career like Deshaun Watson, who dazzled with his big plays and record-setting numbers before having his rookie season cut short.

The Vikings' injured quarterback knows well the tough path Deshaun Watson will be navigating. Watson tore the ACL in his right knee, a source told ESPN's Chris Mortensen, confirming a Houston Chronicle report.

According to ESPN, the injury occurred about halfway through practice on a grass field; Watson appeared to trip or fall but did not yell, someone present at practice told Schefter. Watson got up and felt his knee before it was looked at, but the person said no one believed the injury was season-ending.

Watson did not finish practice. Tom Savage took over at quarterback.        

The Texans will sign Matt McGloin to back up Savage, a source told ESPN's Dan Graziano, confirming a Houston Chronicle report.
