Things are not going too swimmingly for the Houston Texans on Sunday. Already hearing their home-town fans boo them on the field, the Texans saw three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt leave the game with what’s being called a dislocated finger.
Watt probable with dislocated finger. Cushing being evaluated for a concussion. 53-yard TD return by Dante Fowler Jr. Jags lead 19-0

As noted, Watt’s return is probable.
Even then, this has to be of major concern for a Texans team that has done absolutely nothing of substance on offense Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Remember, Watt missed all but three games last season with a back injury.
Simply put, the Texans can’t afford another injury-plagued season for Watt if they hope to repeat as AFC South champs this season.
