There are plenty of boxes to check before the first week of the regular season, but Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson filled in a big one on Tuesday.
Game Mens Teuvo Teravainen Jersey Watson was on the field and running the Houston offense during 7-on-7 drills during their first OTA practice of the offseason. It was also Watson’s first practice since tearing his John Tavares Youth jersey ACL last November and he said all felt well after the session came to an end.
My knee feels [good and] comfortable, Watson said, via Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com. [It was great] to be able to go out there and throw and do some things out there and get the timing down with the receivers. 鈥?Just to actually get back out here with the group, with the team, with the whole offense and being able to just get back to the basics of football and build that chemistry and just build that leadership and that trust within each other.
The Mets’ major leaguers are on the younger side, so they will still have something to build a future around no matter what happens this year; but the front office hasn’t won three rings in the past eight years, so it has a lot less leeway to say whoopsie.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Tannehill will participate in today’s OTAs, and won’t be limited after last year’s ACL surgery.
The Dolphins were linked with a number of options at the position this offseason, but they didn’t draft one, and they let veteran backup Matt Moore walk in free agency (where he remains).
They have an odd lot of backups at the moment, with Brock Osweiler and David Fales and Bryce Petty duking it out for the honor of being second in line. And writing that sentence makes you realize how important it is for Tannehill to be physically prepared for 16 games.
I feel really good right now, Kemp said. It’s going to click for all of us and we’re going to get this thing rolling. As bad as we’ve been playing, we’re right there in the mix.
Colorado had the potential tying run at the plate in the ninth against closer Kenley Jansen.
After retiring Ian Desmond, Jansen gave up a ground-rule double to Chris Iannetta, who went to third on pinch-hitter David Dahl’s groundout to second. Jansen then struck out pinch-hitter Pat Valaika for his ninth save.
