Just over eight months after his season-ending knee surgery, Deshaun Watson is ready to pick up his NFL story where it left off after just seven games.
"I feel great," Watson said Thursday on NFL Network. "I'm getting ready for next week when we report to Greenbrier and I'm going to be full-go."
The Texans starting quarterback, who set multiple rookie passing and touchdown records in just six starts, spent his offseason rehabbing his way back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
Head coach Bill O'Brien was optimistic about Watson's participation heading into the preseason, which begins Aug. 9 for the Texans.
"I think we'll have a really good plan for how many reps he gets relative to practice, relative to the preseason games," O'Brien said June 13.
This offseason, Watson participated in 7-on-7 drills in during the team's OTA practices. He made significant strides in his rehab, even shedding his knee brace by the end of veteran minicamp in June.
Houston Texans Training Camp presented by XFINITY will begin on Thursday, July 26. The camp will open at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, W. Va. for the second year in a row and will continue in Houston following the Texans' first preseason game at the Kansas City Chiefs.
