Are there any stats out there which show how this season compares with previous ones?

The Texans just traded their best Lineman, and now have the immobile Tom Savage under Center. This could get messy....

Watson tore the ACL in his left knee at Clemson in 2014. Not sure which one he's done this time.

Odell Beckham
Joe Thomas
J.J Watt
Whitney Mercilus
Eric Berry
Ryan Tannehill
Dalvin Cook

Surprised Zach Miller isn't on your lists, does seem like a brutal year for injuries.

How on earth does your prized QB suffer an ACL during practice. You would have thought they would have treated with kid gloves especially during practice.

Apparently non contact on a routine HB toss play. Sounds like just a freak accident!

Well, their season's probably over in any case so it doesn't really matter how messy it gets. Another battle of the backups snoozefest against the equally irrelevant Colts at the weekend... there's only one legitimate starting QB left in the AFC South this season now, and even he (Mariota) is only half fit!
