Texans GM Nick Caserio doesn’t expect Deshaun Watson to play in Week 1

While the future of embattled Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson remains unknown, we at least have gotten a hint as to how soon — or not-so-soon — we’ll see him on the gridiron.

Texans general manager Nick Caserio told SportsRadio 610 in Texas he doesn’t expect Watson to make an appearance in Sunday’s season opener against Trevor Lawrence and the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Caserio’s comments aren’t exactly earth-shattering, given the Texans already tabbed Tyrod Taylor as their starter for Week 1 over Watson, who is currently facing 22 civil lawsuits alleging sexual assault and misconduct plus an NFL investigation.

But as’s Kevin Patra points out, Caserio’s interview shines some light on how Houston probably plans to address the Watson debacle on a day-to-day basis. 

The three-time Pro Bowler requested a trade from the Texans back in January, but his off-the-field issues have no doubt chiseled away at his trade value. Watson took part in Houston’s training camp this August but was noticeably not part of the team’s prep for the start of the regular season.
