Texans list Deshaun Watson fourth on depth chart

Texans Pro Bowl quarterback Deshaun Watson is listed fourth-string on the team's first unofficial depth chart of the preseason.

The embattled, disgruntled NFL passing yardage leader from last season has issued a standing trade request and is facing 22 civil lawsuits and 10 criminal complaints being investigated by the Houston Police Department. He is listed fourth behind starter Tyrod Taylor, backup Jeff Driskel and rookie Davis Mills.

Because Watson, who is limited to individual drills and only practiced five periods per day after returning from calf and ankle tightness that sidelined him last week, has no intentions of playing for the Texans again and reported to camp only to avoid $50,000 daily fines, there's no point in him being listed any higher.

Depth charts are of course unofficial and are compiled by NFL teams' public relation departments. In this case, the listing for Watson is accurate.
