Texans Say Deshaun Watson Has 'Normal Bumps And Bruises'

Sep 11, 2019 8:57 AM

Deshaun Watson took quite a few hits during Monday night's loss to the New Orleans Saints, but the Houston Texans say the quarterback doesn't have any significant injuries.

Watson went into the medical tent a few times during the game for what was described as a back issue.

"We ran that play on fourth down and he kind of got flipped in the air," Bill O'Brien said. "He just landed. It’s nothing that’s going to keep him out, just treatment, just normal bumps and bruises like every player in the game has."

Watson was sacked a league-high 62 times last year, and a league-high six last week. He was also hit 11 times.

DeAndre Hopkins Wanted To Skip 2017 Game After 'Inmate' Comment

Sep 4, 2019 7:45 AM

DeAndre Hopkins said in an interview with GQ that his initial plan was to skip a game with the Houston Texans after late owner Bob McNair's "inmates running the prison" remarks in 2017.

"I really didn't want to play in that game, dog," Hopkins said. "I was like, '[Expletive], this is bigger than a game, man.' I’ve got to stand for something [for my children]. If their daddy don't stand up, then what the hell am I going to tell them?

"It feels like I'm a slave again. Getting ran over. Listen to the master, go to work. But I took into consideration that he was older — RIP, his soul. He was a good man, but some people they don't really ... When you grow up certain places, you talk a certain way."

Hopkins skipped practice after the remarks, which McNair made during a meeting of owners and players after President Donald Trump’s criticism of players who knelt during the national anthem.

While Hopkins didn't want to play for McNair's team in that next game at Seattle, he said he chose to for his teammates.

"I play for them," he said. "I don't play for nobody else but my teammates and my family. That's it.

"And then when we kneeled in Seattle, you know what they did? They didn’t even boo, bro. I was like, 'Damn, I love Seattle. They understand what we go through.'"
