Houston Texans starting quarterback Deshaun Watson was limited in practice Thursday due to a chest ailment. Watson took a bevy of hits in Week 5 against the Dallas Cowboys in the chest area and was wincing a lot on the sideline.

Watson was only sacked one time, but the Cowboys got plenty of shots on him in the backfield.

Deshaun Watson was 33-for-44 versus the Cowboys for 375 yards. He threw one touchdown, one interception, and ran for 40 yards on 10 carries. The Texans won by a final score of 19-16 to improve their record to 2-3. Houston hosts the Buffalo Bills in Week 6.

The Texans are officially listing Watson as questionable for Week 6, but it would be a shock to many if he doesn't play. If for some reason Watson can't go, however, Houston will be forced to start Brandon Weeden. Mark Berman of Fox 26 shot a video of Watson talking with head coach Bill O'Brien Thursday while Weeden and third-stringer Joe Webb took reps.

Both Weeden and Webb are below average quarterbacks, so the Texans better hope Deshaun Watson is able to go this Sunday. The second-year star out of Clemson has thrown for 1,621 yards on the season thus far, with eight touchdowns and five interceptions.
