The Jacksonville Jaguars offense can breathe a collective sigh of relief — they won’t be facing one of the best defenders on the Houston Texans.

JJ Watt confirmed tonight that he is out for the season with a reported torn pectoral injury. Watt left today’s game against the Oakland Raiders in the second quarter and was taken to the hospital for an MRI.

While the Texans pass rush isn’t what it once was, they certainly got after Minshew in their first meeting, sacking him four times and forcing three fumbles in a 13-12 win in Week 2.

Watt is currently ranked second on the team with 4.0 sacks.
