From ESPN.com: 

Coming off two games in which Deshaun Watson and the Houston Texans' offense looked poised to make the team a standout in the AFC South, the defense struggled and Houston lost its two most consistent pass-rushers -- including J.J. Watt -- in Sunday night’s 42-34 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Texans lost Watt (tibial plateau fracture to his left leg) and outside linebacker Whitney Mercilus (chest) on the opening drive of the game. Both players were almost immediately ruled out for the rest of the game, and Watt was taken to the hospital in an ambulance. Watt injured his leg after he fell to the ground while blocking on a play. He was helped to the sideline by the Texans’ training staff and looked at in the sideline tent before he was taken off on a cart.
