Savage is Houston's starting QB, but Watson impressing early

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) Tom Savage is Houston's starting quarterback for now, but coach Bill O'Brien is keeping a keen eye on rookie Deshaun Watson, charting his progress as the Texans prepare for their season opener.

When the Texans traded up 13 picks to take Watson 12th overall in this year's draft many assumed that the Clemson standout would immediately move into the starting role.

Instead the Texans insisted that Savage was their starter and have operated that way throughout training camp with the third-year player getting the bulk of the snaps with the first team.
