Houston Texans’ quarterback Deshaun Watson has plenty of support after suffering a devastating injury.
The hearts of everyone in and the around football sank on Thursday when news broke that Houston Texans’ rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson had suffered a torn ACL during practice.
Many people within and around the football reacted to Watson’s injury on Twitter.
Watson’s former college coach, Clemson’s Dabo Swinney, has already commented on his injury.
New York Giants’ star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. sent a special message to Watson.
Watson’s Texan teammate J.J. Watt posted a message of encouragement on Twitter. He knows all about bouncing back from injuries now that he’s suffered two season-ending injuries, two years in a row.
It has to be very encouraging for Watson to see how much support he has from everyone around the NFL.
It will be a long journey back for Watson, but this isn’t the first time he’s torn his ACL. He tore his other ACL in college.
The good news is that Watson should be ready to go for next season.
While it’s brutal for the Texans and their fans to watch Watson’s season end so quickly, It’s safe to say that Houston now has a franchise quarterback for the next 10-plus years.
I know Watson only played half of a season, but he has something special. Swinney, is right, I could see him becoming the Michael Jordan of football.
Not only is Watson talented and a heck of a player, but he’s a good human being in a cruel world. He’s a breathe of fresh air for a country that’s so divided after he donated his first game check to help three Houston women affected by Hurricane Harvey.
