Deshaun Watson received a pep talk from his old coach Thursday.

The Houston Texans rookie had his season cut short after suffering a torn ACL in practice, but Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney believes Watson will be back to his old self once recovered.

"I talked to Deshaun late this afternoon and we are disappointed," Swinney said, according to Austin Knoblauch of NFL Network. "But he is a person who has had some setbacks in his life and always comes back stronger. Since he went through the rehab (for a torn ACL) before, he knows what it takes. All he did after the injury in 2014 was come back and lead us to the National Championship game twice and, of course, we won it last year. He started all 30 games the last two years here. I have no doubt he will come back from this. He has the resolve. His work ethic and drive are incredible."

Watson has taken the NFL world by storm this year with his incredible play, something Swinney saw firsthand with the Tigers.
