The Houston Texans won a huge game over Oakland Sunday but may have lost superstar defensive end J.J. Watt, who is feared to have a torn pec.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media shared this update Sunday evening, noting Watt will have an MRI on Monday to determine the full extent of the injury.

Watt is the anchor of Houston’s defensive line. Once the most feared defender in the game, the veteran hasn’t been quite as dominant in recent years due to a string of injuries, this latest being another difficult one to endure.

So far this season, Watt has 21 tackles and four sacks to his credit.
