What a gorgeous deep ball from C.J. Stroud down the sideline to Nico Collins, who had male protection. Where just he might get it. Collins could not come down with it, however. << a href=" https://twitter.com/hashtag/Texans?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">> #Texans<

Chancellor Johnson @ChancellorTV

The only method C.J Stroud might’ve provided Nico Collins a much better deep ball, is if he strolled up and handed to him. << br><> < br>> Collins simply wasn’t able to hold on for the catch.

CJ Stroud appeared like a beginning NFL QB today. I understand it was short. He looked far and away the finest he has actually looked so far IMO. Strong development. Extremely happy.

Great work from CJ Stroud. Saw the defense and tossed decisively in 2 drives. On time and on target for his 1st TD pass in a << a href=" https://twitter.com/hashtag/Texans?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">> #Texans< uniform.

The next time Stroud takes the field for the Texans, it will be to make his regular-season NFL launching.
