Report: “Expectation” That Deshaun Watson Starts Against Bengals

No, that’s not exactly confirmation that the Texans have made a change at QB.

In the event you were under a rock from about 1:30 p.m. yesterday until this very moment, you may not have known that Bill O’Brien made a change at quarterback for your Houston Texans at halftime of the season opener. Naturally, people want to know whether that change is permanent, or at least who the Texans will trot out under center against the Bengals on Thursday night. We don’t have an answer to that question yet, but we do have Ian Rapoport talkin’ ‘bout expectations.


We live in interesting times, friends.

UPDATE: Rapoport now says how Watson’s ankle holds up at practice today is the final test.
