Houston Texans starting quarterback Deshaun Watson was scheduled to be at game seven of the World Series. Watson was set to call "Play Ball" before the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals game, but that will not be happening according to Fox 26 Houston's Mark Berman. 

"It's definitely a great opportunity," Watson said of being part of the Astros pregame. "A great moment that the Astros and the organization was giving me, but I think the best way – especially with my season going on and us going to London – was to kind of rest up. But I'll definitely be supporting them, watching them and I'll definitely try to give all the positive, good vibes so they can pull it off."

Watson is still dealing with a swollen eye from being kicked in the face in the Texans win over the Oakland Raiders. Dealing with swelling, the medical staff wants Watson to take it easy and rest his eye from lights and continue to let the swelling subside.
