How Texans Ex QB David Carr Ignited the Coaching Career of Lane Kiffin

"We took him to the hospital right away for an MRI," O'Brien said of the Watt injury. "I'm sure I'll hear something tonight here pretty soon and then be able to update you tomorrow." 

Watt will undergo an MRI, but the Texans fear they will be without him for the remainder of the season. 

Watt was injured making a tackle in the second quarter on running back Josh Jacobs for a six-yard loss. Watt instantly got up after the tackle and started to rotate his left arm to check if he was okay. He went to the sidelines to meet with Texans medical personnel, and after a brief check-up in the blue tent, Watt went into the locker room for further evaluation.

The Texans ruled Watt out for the remainder of the game that they were able to win over the Raiders 27-24.
