Texans fans are all too aware of the havoc injuries have wreaked upon the Texans’ season. But you may not have thought about it quite like this.

Perhaps the most interesting thing about that statistic is that the player who was likely the most important to the Texans’ chances of success this year—Deshaun Watson—does not occupy a sizable portion of the cap damage on Injured Reserve by virtue of being on the first year of his rookie deal.

Still, though...ouch.
