Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson resumed running on Monday as part of his rehab from last November's torn ACL. The Texans say Watson is ahead of schedule, and NFL Network reported Watson is expected to be on the field at OTAs, further indicating a so-far-fast recovery. Watson tore his right ACL on November 2 after tearing his left ACL in 2014 at Clemson. Watson was sensational as a rookie, outscoring all fantasy quarterbacks by a whopping six points per game in his Weeks 2-8 run as a starter.
Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson (knee) is expected to take part in 7-on-7 drills during organized team activities, according to a source.
Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson (knee) is looking forward to training camp this offseason because he will be so much more comfortable in his second year. The dual-threat quarterback said his head was spinning last year, but now he knows what he'll need to accomplish before the season commences. As reported previously, Watson is ahead of schedule in his rehabilitation from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and could participate in organized team activities.
Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson (knee) continues to be ahead of schedule in his rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, and head coach Bill O'Brien said he hopes Watson will be able to participate in some drills during offseason workouts.
The Houston Texans agreed to five-year deals with head coach Bill O'Brien and new general manager Brian Gaine on Saturday, according to a source. With former GM Rick Smith taking an indefinite leave of absence to take care of his sick wife, the Texans held onto O'Brien and added Gaine in the front office. It's good news for Houston's offense with an upcoming young quarterback in Deshaun Watson. If Watson is fully healthy in 2018, they could finally put it all together and make a run in the postseason. Houston's defense should also be improved next year with better health all around.
Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson has declared for the NFL draft. Jackson (6'3/211) had a monster sophomore season in 2016, throwing for 30 touchdowns and running for another 21 on his way to winning the Heisman Trophy, beating out Deshaun Watson, Jabrill Peppers, Baker Mayfield, and Dede Westbrook. Opinions vary on Jackson throughout the draft world, with some even suggesting he should switch positions. Jackson is going to be a fascinating player to track this winter.
Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson (knee) has a chance at participating in organized team activities (OTAs) because he's ahead of schedule in his rehab, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. That's great news on Watson's progress from a torn ACL. Even if he doesn't take part in OTAs, Watson is fully expected to be ready for training camp and the 2018 regular season, barring a setback. Watson was electric in his rookie season before suffering his knee injury. He'll likely be a little overvalued in fantasy drafts, but there is true breakout potential.
Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson (knee) is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and could take part in organized team activities, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.
Houston Texans quarterback T.J. Yates didn't finish his three game stint as a starting quarterback on a bright note, going 14-for-24 for 137 yards and an interception in Houston's loss to the Colts. Yates was never part of Houston's long term goals--Deshaun Watson (knee) should be back for the 2018 season--but any hopes that the veteran could be a serviceable back-up for Houston next year seem to have vanished after three consecutive poor performances. Yates doesn't have any fantasy value moving forward.
Updating a previous report, Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien will return in 2018. With general manager Rick Smith stepping away for personal reasons to take care of his wife, who has cancer, the Texans are expected to go outside the organization for Smith's replacement. Buffalo front-office man Brian Gaine could be a candidate, as he was previously fired by Smith and is highly respected by O'Brien. It's quite possible that the only reason O'Brien is returning is the fact that Smith is taking an open-ended leave of absence, as the relationship between O'Brien and Smith has been strained to say the least. It's unclear if Houston will attempt to sign O'Brien to another extension. With a promising young quarterback in Deshaun Watson and a scary defense when healthy, the Texans could easily return to the playoffs in 2018.
The Houston Texans are likely to keep head coach Bill O'Brien around for the 2018 season, according to league sources. There has been speculation that O'Brien was a candidate to be fired after struggling through an injury-ravaged season after winning the AFC South in 2015 and 2016. He has one season left on a five-year deal he signed in 2014, and it's unlikely he'd be back next year without signing him to an extension. Since rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson (knee) was injured, the Texans are 1-6. O'Brien was dealt a bad hand in 2017. With electric QB Watson under center for the foreseeable future and with a strong defense expected to improve next year with better health, Houston should be in contention again next year.
Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien is a candidate to be fired at season's end, as the relationship between O'Brien and general manager Rick Smith is said to be "toxic" and "dysfunctional" by a source. A third source with knowledge of the situation said he would be "kind of surprised" if the Texans didn't make a change. If owner Bob McNair continues to punt on a decision on O'Brien and lets his contract run through 2018, sources say the team would be working under a difficult environment. If O'Brien is fired, he'd likely become the top head-coaching candidate available, and the Giants and Cardinals would likely have interest in him. Under O'Brien in four years, the Texans have won the AFC South division twice, but the relationship with the GM may be too much to overcome. The Texans were ravaged by injuries this season, but they are in a great position to be competitive again in 2018 with young quarterback Deshaun Watson at full health and a strong defense in tow.
Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson (knee) said he plans on being ready for next season after tearing his ACL. "People give you five, six, seven, eight months to come back. It's just whenever we feel it's right. But I know for sure I'll be back next season," Watson said. Since his injury, the Texans have gone 1-6 with Tom Savage and T.J. Yates at quarterback. Watson was electric with Houston in his rookie season, and he extended plays with his legs frequently. As long as his outlook is fair going into training camp next year, he'll be a popular fantasy pick because of his long-term potential.
Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson's ACL surgery was successful, head coach Bill O'Brien said on Thursday. Watson is expected to make a full recovery and to be available by the start of the 2018 season. He should be a top quarterback in redraft leagues next year, even with the repaired knee as a factor.
Updating previous reports, Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson (knee) underwent surgery Wednesday, Nov. 8, to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament. No further damage was found.
