Almost every fan in the NFL witnessed Deshaun Watson make the play of the year this past Sunday. Despite getting inadvertently kicked in the eye by a defensive player from the Raiders, the former first-round pick delivered a beautiful touchdown pass to Darren Fells to give the Texans the lead.

Watson's heroics on Sunday led Houston to a big win over Oakland to improve its record to 5-3.

Unfortunately for Watson, the game-winning touchdown pass came at a price. For the past few days, the former Clemson star has dealt with a swollen right eye.

However, it doesn't sound like Watson's status for this weekend is in jeopardy.

According to Texans reporter Aaron Wilson, the team had Watson at practice on Wednesday.

He was a full participant at practice.

Watson has been incredible for the Texans this season. At this pace, it's fair to say he'll be in the running to win MVP.

Even though Houston isn't in first place in the AFC South, the team remains firmly in the mix for the division crown.

The Texans have an important game this weekend as they face the Jacksonville Jaguars at Wembley Stadium. It'll be interesting to see what Watson has in store for the fans in England.
