Now that Deshaun Watson is eight months removed from the torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee Thomas Vanek Jersey , everyone — especially fans in Houston — expects the Texans quarterback to contend for comeback player of the year and MVP honors. Is it asking too much from a quarterback who has played only seven career games?

“It’s no pressure,” Watson said in a phone interview Thursday after participating in the 14th annual Gatorade Beat the Heat program, teaching young athletes at a YMCA of Greater Houston Camp proper hydration and heat safety.

“I know who I am and what I can do. Pressure is trying to focus on what other people think I can do. I already know what I can do.”

The rest of the NFL learned what he can do last season when the first-round draft pick threw 19 touchdown passes, an NFL record for a quarterback in his first seven games. The Texans averaged 40.5 points per game in his six starts.

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman paid him the ultimate compliment, telling Watson he “played the best game any quarterback has ever played against us.”

“It’s very motivating, very aspiring to have the knowledge of me being able to be successful so young and have players go out of their way to talk about me,” Watson said. “I respect everyone that mentioned my name and said good things about me. I appreciate it.”

Watson, though, expects to be even better in his second season despite defensive coordinators having more tape on him than they did a year ago.

“They adjust to me; I adjust to them,” Watson said. “They’re watching film on me; I’m watching film on them. It’s a chess match. Whoever’s better on that Sunday is going to win the game. I have to stay in my lane and focus on what I have to do and listen to what the coaches are telling me to do. They’re going to make sure I’m prepared on game day.”

Now that players are done with their offseason work, Watson and his receivers will get away to throw together before training camp begins. His rehab will continue, too.

Watson can’t put a percentage on where his knee is Roman Josi Jersey , but he repeatedly said, “It feels good.” He has shed a knee brace, a noteworthy rehab milestone considering he was injured during a November 2 practice. Watson went without the brace for the Texans’ three-day minicamp this week.

“It’s really just a mindset, just having the confidence that I’m going to be just fine and having that faith,” said Watson, who underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL in his left knee in 2014 while at Clemson. “I’ve been through it before, so I kind of had a familiarity with the process and what it takes.”

Police and prosecutors in Georgia say they're reviewing the arrest of a former football player whose lawyers say officers used excessive force.

Video circulated online last week of the Dec. 2 arrest of Desmond Marrow in a shopping center parking lot in McDonough, just south of Atlanta. Marrow, 30, is a former college football player who tried to catch on with two NFL teams.

In the one-minute video clip, officers can be seen forcefully taking a handcuffed Marrow to the ground by sweeping his legs out from under him as he yells, "I'm not even fighting back." When he's on the ground Authentic Mitchell Marner Jersey , an officer puts his hand on Marrow's throat for several seconds and Marrow says, "I can't breathe," while another officer tells him to settle down.

Chris Stewart, an attorney for Marrow, said it's clear from the video that Marrow wasn't resisting and the officers used excessive force. The officers should be fired and the charges against Marrow should be dropped, Stewart said.

Robbie Swinson, who witnessed Marrow's arrest, said in a phone interview Monday that the video "speaks for itself, and it shows excessive force" because Marrow was already cuffed. But he said it only shows a tiny slice of a long encounter and that Marrow aggressively chased another vehicle down the road and in the parking lot, talked about shooting people and then scuffled with police as they tried to handcuff him.

Although a use of force review was done at the time of the arrest, Henry County police Chief Mark Amerman earlier in April ordered an internal affairs investigation, department spokesman Capt. Joey Smith said in an email Friday. One of the officers was placed on administrative duty pending the outcome of the investigation http://www.jaguarscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-leonard-fournette-jersey , he said.

"The Henry County Police Department takes any charges of excessive use of force very seriously and wants to assure the public that this event will be fully investigated," Smith said.

Henry County District Attorney Darius Pattillo said in an emailed statement Friday that his office is conducting a parallel investigation to determine whether the use of force was justified. That is being done by a review panel that includes Pattillo, his chief investigator, another veteran prosecutor and a use of force expert.

"The portion of the video distributed is graphic and violent, and we understand why people are disturbed by this," Pattillo said. "I can assure you that once the investigation is complete, we will respond appropriately."

His office is also examining the charges against Marrow, including felony obstruction of a law enforcement officer, misdemeanor reckless driving and misdemeanor aggressive driving.

Marrow told The Associated Press in an interview Friday that he was driving along when two white men pulled up next to him and started yelling racial slurs and threw a cup of coffee at him. He stayed calm but drove fast to follow them and get their license plate number and followed them into the parking lot to talk to them, he said.

One of the men listed on the police report as a victim disputes that. Scott Davis told the AP by phone Monday that Marrow began aggressively riding his bumper, cursed at him and his friend, threw a rock at their car and yelled that he had a loaded gun and would shoot them.

At one point Authentic Alexander Wennberg Jersey , Marrow pulled in front of them and tried to block them and appeared to be getting out of his truck, so Davis threw a can of Coke to slow him down so they could get away, Davis said. Marrow then followed them into the shopping center parking lot and chased them "driving like a madman" as Davis called 911, Davis said.

Swinson saw Marrow chasing a car along the road and then saw him continue to chase the car through the parking lot, he said. Worried that one of them would hit someone in the parking lot, Swinson said he tried to get between the two cars to stop them.

He blocked Marrow, who got out of the car complaining that the men in the other car had thrown some liquid at his car and hollering that he had a gun, Swinson said.

Police found no weapons when they searched Marrow and decided to arrest him after speaking to the alleged victims and witnesses who said they had seen Marrow aggressively chasing another vehicle and making threats, a police report says.

Marrow played football at the University of Toledo in Ohio but wasn't drafted out of college. He signed a contract in 2012 with the Houston Texans but was cut during preseason. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers picked him up but he didn't make the team.
