Report: Cardinals’ J.J. Watt sustained multiple serious injuries

Arizona Cardinals defensive end J.J. Watt sustained a torn labrum, torn bicep, torn rotator cuff and a dislocated shoulder in Sunday’s win against the Houston Texans, NFL Network reported.

Watt had already been ruled out of Thursday night’s game between the unbeaten Cardinals (7-0) and the visiting Green Bay Packers (6-1).

Previous reports said the three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year needs shoulder surgery and is not expected to return this season.

Watt was injured when he attempted a diving tackle against Houston quarterback Davis Mills near the sideline. He somehow remained in the game before sitting out the fourth quarter of the 31-5 win.

Watt, 32, signed a two-year, $31 million deal with the Cardinals in March after playing his first 10 seasons with the Texans.

He started the first seven games this season and recorded 16 tackles, 10 quarterback hits, one sack and one forced fumble.

This will be the fourth time in the last six seasons that Watt will miss eight or more games. He has 102 career sacks, 26 forced fumbles, 16 fumble recoveries and two interceptions in 135 games since the Texans drafted him 11th overall in 2011.
