Texans QB Deshaun Watson’s outlook for next season gets 3-word reaction from coach
Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson is in training camp, but it seems highly unlikely he suits up for the team in 2021.
Texans head coach David Culley spoke out on Watson’s current situation, which has seen him face numerous sexual assault allegations throughout the course of the offseason. Per Pro Football Talk:
“Nothing has changed,” Culley said Monday when asked whether Watson will practice in pads with his teammates. “Nothing has changed.”
As of right now, Watson has been pushed all the way down to the fourth-string QB on the Texans. That doesn’t come as any surprise, considering what he’s dealing with off the field.
Before the sexual assault saga, the former Clemson standout was making headlines after requesting a trade away from Houston. That’s now a distant memory while his NFL future is also still in question.
The league has yet to say that Watson won’t be able to play at all for the Texans this season. This could be one of the reasons why he’s currently at training camp. It will come down to more developments in his off-field issues, which will give the NFL more clarity to make a decision on Watson’s immediate future.
But as of right now, it’s not looking good for Watson.
