Texans’ Deshaun Watson says ‘surgery was a success’

Deshaun Watson is feeling good after his ACL surgery on Wednesday.

The Houston Texans quarterback had surgery to repair his torn ACL in Houston on Wednesday and doctors did not find any additional damage to his knee, according to a report by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Watson posted a video of himself on Instagram playing video games after his surgery writing, “Surgery was a success.”

A former Gainesville High School and Clemson quarterback, Watson suffered a non-contact ACL tear during practice on Nov. 2 and is expected to be out for the rest of the season.

Before his injury, Watson started his campaign for Rookie of the Year by throwing for 1,699 yards, 19 touchdowns and 8 interceptions and rushing for 269 yards and two touchdowns in seven games— six as starter.
