Taylor steps in as Texans QB amid uncertainty with Watson

HOUSTON (AP) With quarterback Deshaun Watson relegated to little more than a spectator so far in Houston Texans camp, Tyrod Taylor has been running the offense and asserting himself as the team's leader.

"I definitely feel that guys look for me for leadership, and obviously that comes with the quarterback position, and I welcome that role," Taylor said.

Though general manager Nick Caserio and new coach David Culley won't say that they're planning to start Taylor this season, everything that's happened in practices this week has shown that they expect Taylor to replace Watson.
