The Greatest story of the early 2017 NFL season was easily that of Houston Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson who took over the team midway week one and led the Texans to the highest scoring offense in the NFL through Week 7.
Which is why the heartbreaking story was week 8 when he tore his ACL in practice, ending his season and cutting his incredible rookie campaign short.
Which is why one of the most uplifting stories of Super Bowl week is that his rehab is going so well that Watson is on course to participate in 7-on-7 drills during the team’s upcoming OTAs.
This latest report aligns with head coach Bill O’Brien recently saying Watson is “ahead of schedule” in his rehabilitation process.
Yup, just like everything else he did this season.
Can’t wait to see him back on the field next season, and considering his incredible charitable efforts, I can’t wait to see him off of it wither.
