Deshaun Watson was back in a game this week for the first time since surgery to repair a right knee injury in November Brad Boxberger Jersey , and although he didn't play long, he relished his return.

"I just played five snaps, handed the ball off, threw one pass," Watson said. "So, it wasn't too bad. Good to just go out there for a couple plays and then watch everyone else perform."

The Houston Texans quarterback is looking to build on his limited action as the team prepares for two practices with the San Francisco 49ers next week before hosting them in their second preseason game on Saturday.

Watson's health and development in his second year will be critical as Houston tries to bounce back from a season filled with injuries during which the team went 4-12 for its first losing season since 2013. Though he played in just seven games before tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in practice, Watson gave the Texans optimism that he'll be the answer to their longtime problems at the position.

He threw for 1,699 yards and 19 touchdowns and ran for 269 yards and two more scores after Houston traded up to select him with the 12th overall pick in the 2017 draft.

Saturday was the team's first practice back in Houston after the Texans spent the first part of training camp in West Virginia. Although they had to adjust to the hotter temperatures at home, Watson and the Texans got a boost from working out in front of several hundred cheering fans.

"The climate ... it's hot and muggy but at the end of the day we have to come out here and play football and perform and just focus on our task," he said. "So Lions Elite Jerseys , it's always good to have the fans around and show love. They give us energy and high hopes for this season."

The 22-year-old said he's grown a lot since arriving in Houston last season and is looking forward to building on what he did last year.

"Just really (grown) as a person as a whole and then just the knowledge of the game," he said. "Just being able to understand the offense, understand what the defense is doing and just play faster, just go out there and play and not overthink things."

Coach Bill O'Brien, who worked with Tom Brady when he was an assistant with the Patriots, has enjoyed watching Watson develop and is looking for ways to help him take another step.

"I think there's areas where he and I need to grow together, like in the red area," he said. "We're a little bit behind there but we have to work together on that and see if we can execute better down there, but I think there's a lot of areas where he's gotten better and better, and he'll only get better and better because he works at it and the experience he gets will really help him."

Watson is working behind a revamped offensive line this year after last year's group allowed the second-most sacks in the league. So far Youth Deadrin Senat Jersey , he likes the way the unit is coming together.

"Guys just building chemistry, working hard each and every day, never complaining," Watson said. "They make mistakes, but at the end of the day they correct those mistakes and don't make it twice, just like everyone else on the offense. Just guys that love to play football. They have a passion about going in ... and putting in the work, and (are) passionate about winning."

A West Virginia resort owned by Gov. Jim Justice has chosen FanDuel to handle sports betting by its customers in the fantasy sports company's first such wagering arrangement.

The Greenbrier announced Tuesday that New York-based FanDuel will provide retail, online and mobile sports wagering services for the resort in White Sulphur Springs.

West Virginia lawmakers this year approved sports betting at the state's five casinos and on approved mobile apps, shortly before the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a federal law that had banned most sports betting.

The NFL, NBA and others want Congress to set uniform Dolphins Josh Sitton Jersey , nationwide rules on sports gambling for all states, saying the integrity of athletics is at stake.

The West Virginia Lottery Commission approved rules governing sports betting last week. The rules spell out what information casinos have to supply to the Lottery and what they need to do to stay within compliance. The goal is to let the betting begin by the start of football season in September.

Conservative estimates are that the law would generate state revenue of about $5 million in its first year.

Justice allowed the sports betting bill to become state law without his signature. Before he became governor, Justice named his daughter, Jill Justice, as president of the resort, which her father bought out of bankruptcy in 2009. His son, Jay Justice, now handles his coal and agriculture operations.

Jill Justice said in a statement the Greenbrier is "excited to be able to offer this service to those guests who are interested."

FanDuel spokeswoman Emily Bass said in an email it's the company's the first sports betting arrangement with a U.S. resort. FanFuel merged this year with European bookmaker Paddy Power Betfair, which has similar deals with Meadowlands Racetrack in New Jersey and Tioga Downs in New York.

Earlier this month FanDuel rival DraftKings signed a deal with an Atlantic City, New Jersey Cheap Phillip Gaines Jersey , casino to offer sports betting in New Jersey.

"We are equipped to take on the opportunity to get a sports betting license in every market and are taking the appropriate steps to do so," Bass said.

The NFL's Houston Texans are holding their training camp at The Greenbrier starting in late July. Next week the resort will host the PGA Tour's A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier, formerly known as The Greenbrier Classic.

The Greenbrier's onsite betting will take place at an underground casino open only to resort guests and event participants, golf and tennis members and Greenbrier Sporting Club members.

"As we work towards building out a top sports betting product for the upcoming NFL season, we look forward to bringing West Virginia residents, sports fans, and visitors to The Greenbrier the best interactive sports experience on the market," FanDuel CEO Matt King said in a statement.
