Texans OLB Whitney Mercilus suffered a torn pectorals Sunday night against the Texans.
His season is over, and he will be headed to injured reserve in the coming days. Losing Mercilus is a huge blow to a defense which also lost J.J. Watt to what looks like a season-ending knee injury. With the disruptive duo sidelined, the Texans could struggle to get pressure. Oct 9 - 9:10 AM
