Houston Texans second-year quarterback Deshaun Watson is currently steadily recovering an ACL tear that he suffered last November. He has continued push forward through the process that potentially has him on schedule to be ready to return to the field ahead of the 2018 season.

However, given the type of significant injury that he is hoping to return from there is some question of whether he can remain healthy moving forward. According to Sarah Barshop of ESPN, head coach Bill O’Brien believes that Watson’s playing style will allow him to avoid suffering a setback or another major injury.

“He has a really good instinct for maybe gaining the 5 or 6 yards and then going down before he takes the shot,” O’Brien said. “That’s a big thing that young quarterbacks usually have a problem with. He seems to have an instinct for being able to stay out of harm’s way.”

The Texans have much invested in Watson to potentially be the face of their franchise for the next decade. Although O’Brien may have much conviction with his comments, it’s clear that he has much hope that the 22-year-old can remain healthy because clearly, he possesses the talent to become a superstar in the league.

Watson took the league by storm in his rookie campaign in the first seven games of the season throwing for 1,699 yards while setting the rookie franchise-record with 19 touchdown passes, which were tied for the most in the NFL at the time before an ACL tear in practice ended his season. His 19 passing touchdowns were also the most by a quarterback in their first seven career games since 1970, surpassing Hall of Fame quarterback Kurt Warner.

He has the complete package on the field with a strong accurate arm along with the mobility and poise in the pocket to lead the Texans with his arm. It may just be a matter of him being able to stay healthy for the duration of a season to fulfill his potential.
