Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson showed up for day one of training camp at Houston Methodist Training Center.

Ahead of practice, general manager Nick Caserio met with the media and said that he wouldn’t get into too much regarding the Watson situation.

“I would say my comments about that are he reported for training camp the other day,” Caserio said. “I know the league put out a statement and made some comments about where they are in that process. I think from our perspective it’s a day-to-day endeavor. We’re going to take the information. We’re going to process that and respectful of everything and everybody that’s involved, take it one day at a time, and ultimately we’re going to do what we feel is best for the Houston Texans.

“I’m sure there will be some speculation as to what the Texans will do, a lot of different scenarios. Quite frankly, I mean, a lot of it is speculation. I’m not going to comment on a bunch of rumors, what we’ve done, what we’re going to do, what the plan is. That’s not what I’m going to do. That’s not my responsibility. The reason I was brought here by the McNair family was to do what I feel is best for the Houston Texans organization on a day-to-day basis, and that’s my responsibility to ownership and that’s my responsibility to players and that’s my responsibility to the coaching staff. So, that’s how we’re going to handle it.”

When Watson arrived on the field, safety Lonnie Johnson greeted him.

Watson warmed up with quarterbacks Tyrod Taylor, Jeff Driskel, and rookie Davis Mills to start off practice.

Watson’s trade request is still active. The three-time Pro Bowler initiated the trade request in late January. In that span, Watson has been named as a defendant in a lawsuit wherein 22 women allege he committed sexual assault.
