Deshaun Watson looked like he was poised to make a run at the NFL’s Rookie of the Year award after a hot start with the Houston Texans in 2017. That pursuit ended after he sustained a torn right ACL during practice in November.
But organized team activities are now in progress, and the second-year quarterback from Clemson is participating in a limited capacity.
“My knee feels well, comfortable, to be able to go out there and throw and do some things on air and get the timing down with receivers,” Watson told reporters.
It’s now six months later, and Watson is already getting some work in during OTAs.
“I’ve been throwing on the field for a while,” he said. “One of these days … I’ll get back out here with the group, with team, with the whole offense and get back to the basics of football.”
