Texans starting rookie Deshaun Watson against Bengals on Thursday night

All three Texans tight ends in concussion protocol

All three Texans tight ends in concussion protocol

Neither QB played well in the 29-7 loss to Jacksonville. He took almost all of the first-team snaps.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said it would be tough for any of the five to play on Thursday night against the Cincinnati Bengals because of the short turnaround.

After a rousing pregame ceremony to celebrate the Houston first responders, the Texan's came out sluggish. Watson was summoned to replace Savage once the Texans received the second half kickoff. Detroit set an National Football League record previous year by rallying to win eight games after trailing in the final quarter and opened this season with another comeback. His mobility and elusiveness make him an intriguing fantasy option when facing advantageous matchups, but he figures to see his share of highs and lows early on.

It sounds like Watson is good to go, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

The Jaguars opened the scoring with a 42-yard field goal with 12:08 to go in the first quarter. He's our QB24 for Week 2 and is projected to score 14.4 FanDuel points at a cost of $6,700. Newton threw a 40-yard touchdown pass to Russell Shepard in the first half following a fumble by Brian Hoyer, then a nine-yard touchdown to Jonathan Stewart in the third quarter after Luke Kuechly intercepted Hoyer.

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson passes the ball in a game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on September 10, 2017.

Ian Rapoport and James Palmer of NFL Media are reporting that Watson will get the start this week against the Bengals. The Texans look forward to playing Thursday. He can make plays with his feet, he knows what to do.
