Reading the coverage of the Houston Texans...
J.J. Watt spent the bye weekend in his hometown in Wisconsin and Pewaukee High School retired his jersey, writes Jim Hoehn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. When I visited Pewaukee last year it struck me that there was very little mention of Watt anywhere in the school. His name was on a computer printout that included his shot put record and his young high school face appeared in a couple of team pictures. But Watt was never featured anywhere alone. That's changed now. Watt posted this on Twitter on Friday: "Humbled & honored to be returning to Pewaukee tonight to have my jersey retired. Never forget where you came from & who helped get you here."
Based on his experience with Andre Johnson, the Houston Chronicle's John McClain assumes he's taking the start the Texans have had harder than any other player on the roster. McClain ends with a suggestion to Texans coach Gary Kubiak and quarterback Case Keenum: get the ball to Johnson. And speaking of Keenum, McClain says the Texans have yet to announce their starter, but are expected to name Keenum the starter against the Colts.
Owner Bob McNair's support for Texans coach Gary Kubiak is some bull on parade, says the Chronicle's Jerome Solomon. Solomon doesn't think the Texans' one-point loss to the Kansas City Chiefs was a good thing.
