Deshaun Watson said he feels “good”.
Not just good, but “great”.
The Texans quarterback guided Houston to a win over the Cowboys on Sunday Night Football, but took a beating in the process.
He was sacked just once, but hit 10 times. He also endured some shots when he ran 10 times for 40 yards.
After Wednesday's practice, he was listed as a limited participant because of a chest injury.
When asked if he’d be able to play against the Bills this Sunday at noon, he replied “for sure”.
Head coach Bill O’Brien, meanwhile, replied with an “oh yeah”, when he was asked if Watson would be able to suit up versus Buffalo.
Even after the all the hits, Watson said he’s been down this this proverbial road in the past.
“I’ve been sore plenty of times,” Watson said. “It’s part of the game. I’m able to take some shots. Just kind of re-group and keep moving forward.”
Watson and the Texans practiced outside at the Houston Methodist Training Center.
The Houston Texans fans showed up big as the Texans took on the Cowboys at NRG Stadium.
