Houston Texans’ rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson underwent successful ACL surgery and will now work his way back to full health.

After suffering a torn ACL last week, Houston Texans’ quarterback Deshaun Watson underwent surgery this week.

The surgery was performed by Texans’ team doctor, Dr. Walter Lowe. The good news is that Watson is expected to be ready to go for next season.

Texans’ head coach Bill O’Brien confirmed this week that Watson’s surgery was a success.

"“Dr. Lowe said it was great,” O’Brien said. “Everything went great.”"

This is not the first time that Watson has suffered a torn an ACL. He tore his other one during his college career at Clemson University. He’s expected to recover within 8-9 months.

The good news is that Watson looks to be in great spirits, as you can see in the video below.

While it’s a shame that Watson’s season is over, after leading the NFL in touchdown passes at one point this season, the Texans and their fans can feel great in knowing that they’ve finally found a franchise signal-caller.

Football is a brutal sport and this season has been horrific for the Texans when it comes to injuries after also losing J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus to season-ending injuries as well.
