Houston Texans fine players at Deshaun Watson restaurant event

HOUSTON -- The Houston Texans have fined multiple players who attended the grand opening of quarterback Deshaun Watson's new restaurant franchise, sources told ESPN.

Watson, a minority owner of the cheesesteak franchise Lefty's, hosted the grand opening on Dec. 15. Despite the NFL's COVID-19 protocols prohibiting more than three players from gathering, at least six Texans players, including Watson, were in attendance at the event.

According sources, at least one player involved was fined $5,000 and Watson was fined more because it was his event.

Teammates pictured together at the event included offensive linemen Tytus Howard, Roderick Johnson and Laremy Tunsil, running back Duke Johnson and wide receiver Brandin Cooks.
