Citing sources, Rapoport wrote it was a non-contact injury, and an MRI is upcoming to confirm whether that is the case.

Watson, the 12th overall pick in this year's draft out of Clemson, has been a breakout player for the Texans (3-4) this season and was a leading candidate for the rookie of the year award.

Now? Well, it's not over for Houston, but it's going to be a lot tougher. He is the only player in National Football League history to have more than 400 passing yards, 50 rushing yards and four touchdown passes in a single game.

At the beginning of the regular season, quarterback Tom Savage was selected to be the starter for opening day against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Toback denied the allegations, telling the Los Angeles Times that he never met or has "no recollection" of meeting the women. Oscar-nominated director James Toback has been accused of sexual harassment by 38 women, according to a report in the US.

Westgate dropped the Texans' Super Bowl odds from 40/1 to 100/1 in the wake of Watson's injury, and their odds of winning the AFC dropped from 20/1 to 50/1.

Watson's injury came on the same day that the division rival Colts made a decision to place franchise QB Andrew Luck on injured reserve, ending his season.

Savage's return under center for the Texans means a downgrade for the fantasy outlooks of DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller, Lamar Miller, and any other skill players on Houston's roster. From the start, the Jaguars controlled the game and by the half were leading 19-0.

Watson threw for over 400 yards and four touchdowns; he did have three interceptions, though one came on a late desperation heave as he was trying to get his team one last score.
