Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson (knee) said his knee is feeling fine. "The knee is doing good," Watson said. "For the nine-week goal we put in from the beginning (of the offseason program), I'm pretty much where I wanted to be. Kind of passed it inside in the weight room, mentally and also on the field, so everything's going smoothly right now." Watson seems to be ahead of schedule and has been on the field for the start of the team's offseason program through mandatory minicamp. He hasn't taken part in 11-on-11 drills but has recently taken his knee brace off and has looked good. Watson was posting ridiculous numbers in his rookie year before he tore his ACL. He has top-five QB upside and will cost a pretty penny in fantasy drafts.
Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson (knee) is practicing without a knee brace during minicamp this week. He is taking part in individual 7-on-7 drills but not team drills. The Texans are understandably easing Watson into workouts this offseason, but he looks to be ahead of schedule and should be full go for training camp. The rookie was posting elite QB1 numbers before his knee injury last year and has top-five upside at the position in an improving offense.
Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson (knee) has looked good during organized team activities and doesn't look limited at all following an ACL tear in his rookie season. He'll remain the centerpiece of the team's offense, and the Texans don't plan on limiting his scrambling abilities. "You really have to never suffocate what the guy can do," quarterbacks coach Sean Ryan said. "You never want to take that away, his instincts, his ability to make plays. You just want to make sure that you're hitting the points with him of understanding when it's smart to do those things and when it's not." In an improving offense with better options around him, Watson has plenty of upside as a strong QB1.
