Houston Texans star defensive end J.J. Watt can’t seem to shake the injury bug. On Sunday night, he suffered another injury against the Kansas City Chiefs at NRG Stadium on Sunday Night Football.

He was diagnosed with a fractured tibia in his left leg. He’s likely done for the rest of the season.

Watt is the second star player, who suffered a season-ending injury on Sunday. New York Giants star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. also is lost for the season with a bad ankle injury.

The team is calling Watt’s injury a tibial plateau fracture. He suffered the injury in the first series of the game.

According to Houston Chronicle’s John McClain, the injury will require season-ending surgery.

This is not the first injury that Watt has had to deal with. Earlier this season, he had a finger injury in Sept. that had the bone break through the skin.

Last season, he had back surgery for a herniated disc and played in the first game of the season. Then, on Sept. 26, 2016, he was placed on injured reserve, ending his season.

He only played in three games last season.

Despite dealing with groin and a fractured left hand, Watt played all 16 games during the 2015 season.

He hasn’t been truly healthy for a season since the 2014 season when he made the Pro Bowl.
