    Ian Rapaport says he's out for the season.

    One of the worst days in recent Houston Sports memory

    He may be out for the season, but the injury could have been worse. It's not a Nate Newton type of thing.

    I feel terrible for JJ though.

    I just hope the ligaments are in tact.

    That's going to decide whether he can come back next year and give it one more go at being a good player.

    If he's blown out the knee and broken the tibial well it might be time to hang it up.

    This dude had the best 5 year stretch of anyone at the DE position. The last two years his body has failed him. First the back and then the knee, prob the two worst things that can happen to any athlete and he's had both and serious ones at that in less that 18 months.

    Right because the hip and the knee are the same thing.

    What a dumbass.

    Sucks. But it's time to start looking towards the future and unfortunately Watt is not going to be around for long.

    He will try one more time and I see it being over. Retired in 2 years.

    I didn't expect JJ to last the season anyway, because of his back. But this still hurts bad.

    No, moronovich, it is about the blood vessels and possible necrosis. How is it you go through life as such a blithering idiot?

    I always wonder what would have happened if we managed his snaps better and also if he didn't do those ridiculous off-season workouts like the tire flipping

    At least the back gets more rest now?

    Silver lining in anything... but odds are, its going to take a ton just to get him back to playing regularly, let alone playing at anywhere close to the level he was in 2015/prior.

    I remember reading that Watt said he doesn't expect to walk when he's 50. With this injury and all of the other injuries that Watt has had I can see that as possibility. As someone where 50 isn't that far off I hope that Watt thinks about his future and what his quality of life will be.

    When I was in my 20's I often didn't think I would make it to 40. As such I often took a lot of risks, competed hard and competed injured. I'm still in very good shape for my age but there are a lot of things that I can't do anymore because of previous injuries. There isn't a day that I don't wake up with something hurting. There's a lot of time when I think back that I could've done things smarter. Now Watt is far bigger and stronger than I ever was and also has access to the best and most expensive medical care. He's also been subjected to far more force and faced opponents who are far bigger and stronger than I ever faced. Watt really seems like a good guy and he's a phenomenal football player. There is a time though when you need to think about the future.

    Maybe this injury helps him take time off for the back. Who knows.

    That shipped sails as soon as he had the 2nd back surgery he'll never be the MVP dpoy JJ ever again.

    He was still causing havoc this year even without the stats his pressure and speed was there but man the thing is the back is connected to the knees man and these type of things imo are going to keep happening because the guy only knows how to play one way.

    Assuming there's is know legiment damage and tbh the way it looked I would be shocked if he didn't atleast tear his PCL if not blown the whole knee out.

    He can still be a nice player that gets 7-8 sacks and is a solid solid guy on your dline but he's never going to he the all pro ever again and after this injury I don't see him being even a pro bowler.

    He can still help but it's the clowney era now time to shift him to DE and let him do what he does best and that's rush the QB. Get him out of that linebacker roll.
