Watson finished third and second in the Heisman Trophy voting for the 2015 and 2016 seasons respectively. The Texans signed Brock Osweiler to a $72 million contract before last season, but he was benched before the season was over and shipped to the Cleveland Browns in the offseason.
Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson's sensational rookie campaign has been cut short.
Savage has been in the system of old and doesn't have the running ability that Watson does so the question will be what Coach O'Brien does with the offense. He was the team's starter in their opener, but he was replaced at halftime by Watson, who ran away with the job. Under his guidance, the Texans had scored 30 or more points in five straight games to set a franchise record. Watson is tied with Carson Wentz for most touchdowns this season, completing 61.8% of his passes with a 103 passer rating.
In his last outing against the Seattle Seahawks, Watson became the first rookie in National Football League history to throw for over 400 yards and rush for over 60 in the same game (402 yds, four TDs, three INTs, 67 rush yds). The Texans host the Colts (2-6) on Sunday.
But, for now, Tom Savage is the direction the team needs to go in for the time being, which is not exactly the ideal situation. He is the only quarterback on the roster besides Watson.
