Houston Texans starting quarterback Deshaun Watson day-to-day with chest injury

Rumors began spreading on Tuesday morning.

The Houston Texans could be starting their backup quarterback against the Buffalo Bills this Sunday. Following last Sunday night’s win over the Dallas Cowboys where he took a beating, Texans quarterback reportedly has a chest injury and is considered day-to-day.

If Watson can’t go, Brandon Weeden is their second-string quarterback and former Bills QB/ST/WR Joe Webb is the third quarterback.

“That’s my mentality, so regardless of what I’ve got to do -- if its three dudes like it was tonight multiple times -- I’m going to try to fight my ass off to get in the end zone and that’s my mentality,” said Watson after the game. “Whatever it takes. I’m built to take those hits, and I’m just going to give all my will and my guts and try to get the ball in the end zone.”

Watson was hit ten times in the pocket and he’s averaging almost 11 hits per game. He’s been sacked 18 times, second only to Josh Allen’s 19 take-downs.

We’ll see more on Wednesday when the Texans will have to log an official injury report following practice.
