J.J. Watt on Andrew Luck's retirement: “He's an incredible competitor. I've loved playing against him. I think it takes an immense amount of courage, an immense amount of self-reflection and a lot of guts to do what he's doing. I'm sure people have their ways of looking at it and their ways of trying to say what they would do in his shoes, but the truth is, nobody's in his shoes. Nobody has had to go through what he has had to go through. Nobody has been through the rehab and injuries. Everybody sees gameday. They don't see the offseason. They don't see the Monday through Friday and doing whatever he possibly can to get his body ready for the game. I respect the hell out of it. It takes a whole lot to walk away from a ton of money like that, an organization like that. I respect it. I've had a couple of injuries myself, so I know somewhat what he is going through. To be able to make a decision like that, that's a tough one. I know he's probably wrestled with it for a very long time. I wish him absolutely all the best."

Deshaun Watson on Andrew Luck's retirement: "It was mind-blowing. It was something that of course caught everyone off-guard. But, hey, he can control his own future. He's a great player. He's a great quarterback. One of the top five quarterbacks in the league. And he's doing it for the right reasons: for himself."

A pair of Texans players were carted off in the first quarter: starting running back Lamar Miller and guard Zach Fulton. Miller was checked out on the field after he was tackled just above the left knee by Cowboys defensive tackle Maliek Collins. Fulton was hit on the next play, when quarterback Deshaun Watson was sacked.

Watson throws TD pass to help Texans over Lions 30-23

Deshaun Watson took advantage of one series in his preseason debut looking sharp in directing a 75-yard drive capped by a 4-yard touchdown pass to DeAndre Hopkins to help the Houston Texans to a 30-23 win over the Detroit Lions on Saturday night.

Quarterback Deshaun Watson looked sharp in his lone series in the Texans' preseason game against the Lions. Watson completed 5-of-7 passes for 60 yards and a touchdown to DeAndre Hopkins. He also showed off his mobility, scrambling for seven yards.

Bill O'Brien was asked whether he was still expecting Jadeveon Clowney to report. “At some point, yeah. At some point, he'll come in, I believe. But that's up to him.” Clowney has not been at the team facility since the end of last season, missing all of the Texans' spring workouts and training camp so far after Houston used the franchise tag on him.
