Bill O'Brien refused to name his starting quarterback on Tuesday.
NFL Network's James Palmer reported Tuesday that Watson took every snap with the offensive line during the walkthrough portion of practice open to the media.
After the statuesque Savage got repeatedly sacked in the first half, including two fumbles lost, O'Brien gave his starter a quick hook. While Watson led the Texans to their only scoring drive to open the second half, the rookie looked raw. He repeatedly threw off-target from his back foot, was sacked four times, and tossed an interception (he had another pick overturned on a Jags penalty during the TD drive). Behind a shaky offensive line, Watson's mobility is a plus, but he has big strides to make on the minutia of NFL quarterbacking.
Signs might point to Watson getting the start, but on a short week, O'Brien isn't tipping his hand.
