Texans QB Deshaun Watson snaps at media

In the throes of his training camp of discontent, Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson snapped at the camera crews that filmed players walking on the practice field Thursday morning in Houston.

“Why are you all always filming me every day? It’s the same s–,” he said.

The eyes have been on Watson during camp, despite the three-time Pro Bowl selection’s fall to fourth-string quarterback on the depth chart.

According to multiple reports Wednesday, the Texans, under first-year head coach David Culley, requested to end training camp early but were rebuffed by the NFL. League rules require training camp practices to be open to local media until Aug. 26 but can be restricted once the team transitions to “regular season” mode.

Watson, who turns 26 next month, largely was an observer for the first two weeks of training camp and isn’t expected to accompany the team to Green Bay for Saturday’s preseason opener against the Packers. Culley said he was dealing with a calf issue, and a trainer gave attention to both of Watson’s legs in the medical tent before he took the field Wednesday.

Prior to Culley being hired as head coach, Watson requested a trade. He also is facing civil suits from 22 women accusing him of sexual misconduct during massage sessions.

Watson’s four-year, $156 million contract extension is scheduled to kick in with the 2022 season.
