We’ve heard from a variety of players and coaches about the torn right ACL suffered by Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson during practice on Thursday and now we’ve heard from Watson as well. The Texans rookie posted a long statement on Twitter Friday sharing thoughts, hopes and promises spurred by the injury. As Watson references at one point, it’s not the first time he’s dealt with a torn ACL. He tore the left one during a Clemson practice and then played in a rivalry game against South Carolina. The Texans won’t let him do the same, but it would seem to be a good sign for Watson’s resiliency that the other injury didn’t stop his rise through the football ranks. “They say you never miss it until it’s gone and even though it’s not gone for long, I already miss it. Yesterday, I felt like I let my teammates, my fans and my family down. However, as a child of God, I understand that everything happens for a reason. He DON’T make mistakes!
