If the Texans plan to keep Deshaun Watson in the fold but not on the field pending the resolution of his legal issues, they need to set the stage for putting him on injured reserve. By citing injuries when he didn’t practice earlier in camp, they seemed to be doing so.
On Tuesday, coach David Culley blew a hole in that plan.
“No, he’s not injured,” Culley said. “We come up each day and we have a thing for him, and basically we got done what we needed to get done yesterday in practice.”
Culley said Watson is in the building and doing what is asked of him and should "be back out here pretty soon," according to the story. The story also added that Culley’s claim that Watson isn’t injured, if not an instance of Culley misspeaking (or inadvertently telling the truth), could mean that the team is preparing to tell Watson that it’s time to earn his money.
