The Texans’ two most important players have spent more time together than with their families over the past six months. Deshaun Watson and J.J. Watt have rehabbed together, worked out together and supported each other in their comebacks from major injuries.
It was similar as me, Watson said, via Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. We have the same mindset: Grind and feel like we’re in last place, never get complacent. Each and every day is an opportunity for us to get better, and we know that we have a long way to go to get back to where we were but we understand the process.
Watson got in some work during the team’s OTAs this week. Watt watched from the side. But both have made progress.
Watt played in five games last season before a tibial plateau fracture ended his season prematurely. He is expected to return in time for training camp.
Watson played seven games before tearing his right ACL last season. He has said he definitely expects to be ready for training camp.
Hours after he was released on a summons after allegedly threatening an Uber driver with a weapon in New Jersey, Dykstra offered up an apparent window into his mindset — by tweeting lyrics to Swift’s hit Shake It Off.
The speedy Chark also ranked second in the Southeastern Conference by averaging 10.6 yards a punt return. He finished his college career with 1,817 all-purpose yards.
Chark says to finally put your name on that piece of paper to solidify that you are indeed a player here is a surreal moment. I can’t even put it in words right now.
The Jaguars have six of their seven draft picks under contract. Only first-round defensive lineman Taven Bryan remains unsigned.
That inexperience could be what limits the potential for a defense that added defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh and cornerbacks Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters, but Littleton expects the linebackers to respond to the challenge.
We’re all still developing, but by the time the season comes I feel we’ll all be ready and we can all show that we have more to offer than people might think, said Littleton, who is getting the first chance to replace Ogletree in the middle.
Suh is emphasizing the little details to his youthful teammates, but understand that they take time to be refined.
