HOUSTON (SPORTSRADIO 610) – Deshaun Watson ditched the knee brace on Tuesday, and then told everyone on Wednesday that he’s exactly where he wants to be coming off knee surgery. 

“The knee is doing good, able to do some things on the field with the team.  Physically wise, for the nine-week goal that we put in from the beginning, I’m pretty much where I want to be.  Kind of past it in the weight room, mentally and also on the field.  Everything is going smoothly right now,” Watson said to the media after Wednesday’s minicamp.

Watson exploded on the scene last season with 19 touchdown passes in his first seven games giving the Texans hope that they found their quarterback of the future.

Then after a four-touchdown performance against Seattle, and soon after the Astros won their first ever World Series, Watson tore his ACL in practice.

The Texans would win just one of their final nine games after Watson’s injury.  The attention gravitated to Watson’s rehab, and while it always felt Watson would be ready to go for the start of the season, it’s nice for the Texans to know Watson is on pace to be ready well before the start of the regular season.

For Watson, that’s no surprise.

“I put the time, the effort, and the work in every morning,” Watson said.  “I’ve just been grinding.  I’m not surprised at all.  I’m right where I need to be and where I want to be.”
