Cheese Curds, 11/3: DeShaun Watson tears ACL, Brett Hundley gets a deer

Another tragic injury struck in the NFL on Thursday.

NFL: Houston Texans at Seattle Seahawks Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

This year it seems that more season-ending injuries have struck NFL stars than in any previous season, and Thursday saw the league lose another one to a freak injury.

Houston Texans quarterback DeShaun Watson tore his ACL in practice yesterday, adding yet another name to the list of stars who have landed on injured reserve.

The Green Bay Packers of course know the pain of losing a franchise quarterback to a serious injury. Brett Hundley will make his second start as Aaron Rodgers' replacement on Monday, a week after having some success off the football field.
