Deshaun Watson, QB (HOU)

Texans mum on Week 3 status

Houston head coach David Culley was vague when asked about Watson's status heading into Week 3, a Thursday night matchup against the Panthers, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The major development in Sunday's loss to the Browns was the hamstring injury suffered by starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor, who was replaced by rookie Davis Mills to start the third quarter. On a short week of preparation, Taylor's availability for Thursday is unknown until the Texans can evaluate him over the next few days. Presuming Taylor is a no-go Thursday and Mills starts, Watson could be an option as the backup quarterback. "We'll have to wait and see what happens," Culley said. Watson has been inactive for the first two games of the season. The Texans could also elevate Jeff Driskel, who spent training camp and preseason with Houston, from the practice squad.
