Houston lost arguably its best player in J.J. Watt, as well rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson, who proved to be quite the playmaker before getting injured.

It seems O'Brien will return, and along with him, the return of Watson.

The drama surrounding the Houston Texans internal battle between GM Rick Smith and coach Bill O'Brien has temporarily resolved itself with an unfortunate twist.
