Report: Texans LB Mario Williams Out For Season With Torn Pectoral Muscle
After leaving Sunday’s game against the Oakland Raiders, it was feared that Houston Texans linebacker Mario Williams would miss the remainder of the season with a torn pectoral muscle. Unfortunately, that appears to be the case as the Texans will have to play the rest of 2011 without their former No. 1 pick.
According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, Williams will have surgery this week to repair the torn pectoral muscle and this comes as a huge loss to the Texans’ defense. Right before the injury, Williams recorded his fifth sack of the season.
Obviously, this is devastating news for a Texans’ team that finally appeared ready to take over the AFC South considering the Indianapolis Colts are struggling to adjust to life without Peyton Manning after an 0-5 start. Houston still has plenty of talent to make a strong run at the division, but having Williams on the defensive side of the ball always put them at an advantage considering he’s arguably one of the top defenders in the league–so this news hurts.
