Deshaun Watson: I know who I am and what I can do

Now that Deshaun Watson is eight months removed from the torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, everyone — especially fans in Houston — expects the Texans quarterback to contend for comeback player of the year and MVP honors. Is it asking too much from a quarterback who has played only seven career games?

It’s no pressure, Watson said in a phone interview Thursday after participating in the 14th annual Gatorade Beat the Heat program, teaching young athletes at a YMCA of Greater Houston Camp proper hydration and heat safety.

I know who I am and what I can do. Pressure is trying to focus on what other people think I can do. I already know what I can do.

Now that players are done with their offseason work, Watson and his receivers will get away to throw together before training camp begins. His rehab will continue, too.

Luck said he went out and played catch with coach Frank Reich three weeks ago with The Duke, a regulation NFL football. It marked the first time he had done so since last October’s failed attempt to return from shoulder surgery, and he could tell it was different this time.

It’s gone, Luck said of the pain, via Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star. The Shane Vereen Womens Jersey pain is gone and it’s going to stay that way.

Luck also insisted yesterday that he would be ready for the regular season opener, but after eight months since last throwing, and a year and a half from the surgery, it’s reasonable to be skeptical (especially after owner Jim Irsay’s promises a year ago which baited in paying customers).

But Luck said all the rehab and work he’s done this offseason has him in a better place, as he gradually increases his Authentic Austin Rivers Jersey workload.

A very different soreness, Luck said. I had pain last year (that) I wasn’t being honest to myself about. I was trying to get through pain, per se. There’s none of that now….
