Summary from the Final Week of Camp
This is Tyrod Taylor’s team, for now. He played three drives in the preseason finale against the Buccaneers, completed 6-of-9 passes for just 31 passing yards, and lost a fumble. Trade rumors continue to swirl around disgruntled former starter Deshaun Watson. Long-time Houston beat writer Aaron Reiss reported that Watson wouldn’t waive his no-trade clause for the Philadelphia Eagles. He prefers Carolina or Miami. With Houston demanding three first-round picks and other compensation, it is hard to see a deal getting done anytime soon. The most likely scenario for 2021 is Watson remaining on the Texans 53-man roster but being a healthy scratch. He hasn't been practiced with the team for weeks, spending his time attending meetings and training sessions. He has occasionally worked out on a side field with strength and conditioning coach Mike Eubanks, but recently, he hasn't practiced, even in a scout team capacity. It looked like Davis Mills was overcoming his turnover issues that were plentiful early in camp. However, he threw three interceptions in just over a half of work against Tampa Bay. He also completed just 10-of-27 passes.
The starting offense used a four-man committee against the Buccaneers. Mark Ingram II led the way with ten snaps, but David Johnson (9 snaps), Phillip Lindsay (5 snaps), and even Rex Burkhead (3 snaps) each got time with the starting group. Guessing how the snaps will be divvied up in the regular season is next to impossible. Expect Johnson, Lindsay, and Ingram to see time regularly. The only question is whether Burkhead also factors into the weekly game plan.
