With the Texans sinking fast, Watt was seen arguing with Houston's head trainer, who stood between the All-Pro end and the playing field, per NFL Media's James Palmer. On the following drive, though, Watt gave in, standing idle as Houston allowed Alex Smith and the Chiefs to burn down the field for a touchdown and an insurmountable 27-0 lead.
It's been a terrible day for the Texans, exemplified by the loss of Watt. A stellar season for the league's top defensive talent couldn't have come down to a more frustrating fashion.
Take a look at some other injuries that we are tracking:
