Houston Texans pull Tom Savage for Deshaun Watson

Houston Texans pull Tom Savage for Deshaun Watson

Except Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis isn't game-planning for Tom Savage, he's preparing his defense for rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson. Savage completed just over half of his passes (7-for-13), but averaged just over 4 yards per pass.

During the walk through period of #texans practice we could watch, Watson took every snap with the OL.

Watson's ankle reportedly held up fine during Tuesday's practice, which was enough to get him the starting nod over fellow quarterback Tom Savage.

"The health of any player is the first determinant in whether they play or not", O'Brien said, via Houston's team website.

Jacksonville walked into Houston and left with an eye-opening 29-7 win to start the season 1-0.

"I would say that most of those guys are probably going to be out for the game, relative to it being a short week", O'Brien said Monday. The Cowboys' offense was led by quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott, who riddled the proud New York Giants defense. "I was holding on to the ball a little too long, trying to make some plays down the field", Savage said. In two quarters of work, Watson went 12-for-23 for 102 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Watson's touchdown pass to DeAndre Hopkins was Houston's only score of the game. Bengals kicker Randy Bullock was a Texans fifth-round draft pick in 2012, and was with the Texans through September, 2015; he played in college at Texas A&M ... Savage was named the starter heading into the season, but things changed when the Jaguars were able to sack him six times in the first half on Sunday.

When asked if the decision would be made at game time O'Brien responded with "maybe. yeah".

The difference between Savage and Watson is that the latter can run as well improvise his way out situations and is not afraid to do it.

When asked about that drive, JJ Watt said, "We didn't stop them".
