Texans coach Bill O’Brien on Tuesday declined to name a starting quarterback for Thursday night’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

All signs, however, point to the Texans starting rookie Deshaun Watson. He took every snap with the first-team offense during the short portion of practice open to the media on Tuesday.
Gronkowski is understandably upbeat about the 2017 Patriots. The tight end said he doesn’t like to listen to the noise about New England being a Super Bowl favorite, but he thinks the team will be good.
That will be the case, he says, even without Julian Edelman, the wide receiver who was placed on season-ending IR due to a knee injury suffered during the preseason.

I mean you really you can’t replace a player like Julian, the way he works, the way he plays the game of football. It’s just second to none, Gronkowski said. It’s a tough break for sure, but at the same time there’s a lot of players who have to stay up. We’ll just have to keep on trucking.
Gronkowski spoke to SN on behalf of Tide Sport PODS, a product the Patriots tight end said would have been ideal when he was growing up playing sports. His mother always had a rule that after playing outside, he needed to take off his clothes in the laundry room before entering the house. Not shockingly, Gronkowski loved to get muddy and dirty.
Even now, he said, he loves to make a mess, a big reason he won’t buy nice clothes. Gronkowski said he still gets food on his clothes while eating out and is still fully capable of making a mess: It’s what I do.
