Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson was on the field Tuesday as minicamp got underway, but the knee brace he’d been wearing on his right leg in previous offseason practices open to the media was not.

The Nets also created another new job, director of sports medicine. They hired Les Gelis for that post, which he will assume once he’s finished at this summer’s World Cup in Russia, where he’s the Australian national Cheap Heat Jerseys team’s head of physiotherapy.
