Deshaun Watson is no longer the Houston Texans starting back, according to the team’s latest depth chart. In fact, on the Texans’ unofficial depth chart, the embattled star quarterback has been demoted to fourth string.
Tyrod Taylor is currently listed as the team’s starting signal-caller and will likely lead the first-team offense onto the field for the preseason opener against the Green Bay Packers, while Jeff Driskel is the primary backup.
Davis Mills sits at No. 3 on the depth chart, followed by the All-Pro.
Here is a look at the unofficial depth chart, which was reportedly updated by Houston Texans PR this week.

Recently, reports surfaced that trade talks for Watson were “heating up” between the Houston Texans and Philadelphia Eagles. Whether that leads to an official deal remains to be seen.
Watson is facing 22 civil lawsuits alleging sexual misconduct. The 25-year-old All-Pro signal-caller, however, has adamantly denied the allegations against him.
