Miller: 'Can't really notice issues' with QB Deshaun Watson's knee

ESPN - [Full Article]

It's only been seven months since Deshaun Watson needed surgery on his right ACL, but according to those around him, it's hard to tell the second-year quarterback is still coming back from injury.

On Tuesday, running back Lamar Miller said he wouldn't even know Watson was injured if the Houston Texans' coaching staff wasn't easing him back into his on-field work.

"I can't really notice any issues with his knee, other than his coaches holding him back from certain drills," Miller said. "He's very confident after his success in his rookie season, and he's definitely ready to take that next step."

Fantasy Impact: 

At the beginning of organized team activities, Watson took the field with his teammates for the first time since he tore the ACL in his right leg in an early November practice. On Tuesday, Watson didn't wear a brace on his right knee for the first time this offseason in the practices that have been open to the media, the story said.

It went on to say that during OTAs the quarterback has been participating in 7-on-7 drills, but sitting out the team drills involving players rushing the passer. Watson has said all offseason he expects to be at full strength by training camp and be the Texans' starting quarterback to open the season against the New England Patriots.
