Deshaun Watson is expected to start this week over Tom Savage.

After replacing Tom Savage at halftime in the Texans' opener versus the Jaguars, Deshaun Watson is expected to start this weekend when they take on the Bengals.

Nothing has been made official yet, but if the below photo is any indication, it looks like Watson will be the starter.

Today during practice Watson took "every snap" with the starting offensive line, according to NFL Network's James Palmer.

Check it out:

Watson was 12-of-23 with a touchdown pass and an interception in his debut, and he led the Texans to a touchdown on his first drive.

Houston and Cincinnati face off on Thursday night at 8:25 p.m. E.T. and you can catch the game on NFL Network.
