The Houston Texans were dealt a devastating blow today, as they have lost their most dominant player for the remainder of the 2016 NFL season.
Texans' head coach Bill O'Brien confirmed Friday that star defensive end J.J. Watt is officially out for the rest of the 2016 season. Watt underwent back surgery Thursday, his second back surgery in three months.
The team had initially placed Watt on I.R, hoping that he would be able to return during the season. Unfortunately, O'Brien confirmed that Watt would not return at any point during the 2016 season and will have to wait until 2017 to take the field once again.
Watt will turn his focus to rehabilitation, and the football community to which he devotes a massive amount of his time.
For the Texans, they only hope the four-time Pro Bowler can return to the game at his same otherworldly level of play as they are accustomed to.
