Houston Texans’ quarterback Deshaun Watson is now dealing with an injury that he suffered during Sunday’s loss.
Even though the Houston Texans are expected to go with rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson as their starter for their week two match-up against the Cincinnati Bengals, he may need to overcome a small hurdle.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media is reporting that Watson suffered an ankle injury during Sunday’s loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Texans suffered quite a few injuries against the Jags and given the fact that they only have three days to rest before their next game is not good.
My guess is that Watson suffered a sprained ankle and his ability to play will depend on how he reacts to treatment this week as well as how well he can move around inside and outside of the pocket.
Let’s be honest, Tom Savage really isn’t the problem with the Texans’ offense. So if he has to start, it wouldn’t be the end of the world. The problem is the fact that their offensive line is a train wreck.
Even if Savage does start, he could end up getting injured and the Texans don’t need that to happen, given the fact that they only have two quarterbacks on their roster. They may need to bring Brandon Weeden back.
In all honesty, a mobile quarterback like Colin Kaepernick wouldn’t be a bad back up option for Houston.
