Deshaun Watson’s future with the Houston Texans has been the talk of the NFL for the past few months. With the regular season about to begin, there’s still no clear answer as to how this situation will play out.
The Texans have Watson listed as their No. 3 quarterback heading into this season, but the odds of him actually seeing the field are extremely slim.
On Wednesday, Texans general manager Nick Caserio was asked about the team’s plan for Watson this season. Per usual, he kept his cards close to the vest.
“Each day we’re gonna make the decision we think is best,” Caserio told reporters. “Again, it’s a one-step process. Deshaun’s been here every day. He’s been in training camp every day. He’s been in the building, he’s been in meetings, he’s been around his teammates. We’re gonna take it one day at a time.
“I’m not going to get into a lot of speculation about what has happened, what didn’t happen. It’s a waste of everybody’s time, quite frankly, I think there’s more important things to talk about. We’re gonna take it one day at a time, we’re gonna do what we feel is best for our team and organization. I would say there’s no finite answer, no definitive answer here at this point and that’s how we’re gonna handle it.”

Caserio has been preaching about a day-by-day approach for several weeks. It shouldn’t really surprise us that his stance on Watson’s situation hasn’t changed.
The Texans will open the 2021 season at home against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Tyrod Taylor is currently listed as the starting quarterback for that matchup.
