Deshaun Watson suffered a chest injury last weekend in the Texans’ 19-16 win over the Cowboys, according to a report from the Houston Chronicle.
The 23-year-old quarterback is considered day to day, the report says.
Watson received multiple big hits in the victory against the Cowboys. He was examined in the medical tent late in the fourth quarter but returned to the field for overtime.
“Dallas was very physical and Deshaun is very physical,” Texans coach Bill O’Brien said about the game. “Obviously, those are plays we want to cut down on and we’re going to work hard to do that going forward because we know that’s not a sustainable way to play to be hit that much. We’re going to work on it and try to improve on that.”
Watson has completed 65.1 percent of his passes and thrown eight touchdowns along with five interceptions in five games this season.
The Texans originally selected Watson with the 12th pick in the 2017 draft. He tallied 21 total touchdowns in seven games as a rookie but suffered a torn ACL in an early November practice and missed the rest of the season.
The Texans will face the Bills in Week 6 action Sunday.
