After suffering a chest injury in the tough overtime win against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson was considered day-to-day, until today. 


According to both Watson and head coach Bill O'Brien, he plans to suit up in Week 6 against the Buffalo Bills.

Watson has been hit an NFL-high 55 times behind the Texans' terrible offensive line, but his mobility is one of the few things keeping this team afloat. It seems like every other play he is scrambling around the field, running for his life and trying to make a play. 


Chest and rib injuries can be much more problematic for a quarterback than other positions, so if the Texans intend to keep Watson on the field, they'll have to do a better job of keeping him upright.

All signs point to Watson being under center this Sunday, making him a sure-fire QB1, but monitoring the situation leading up to kickoff would be in your best interest.
