The Houston Texans spent the No. 2 overall pick on C.J. Stroud with the expectation he'll become their franchise quarterback for the next decade-plus.

He just might have to work for it in 2023, Nick Shook of reports.

Texans head coach DeMeco Ryans became the latest whistle-wearer to take a stance many coaches have adopted before him, telling reporters Tuesday he and his staff are a long way from deciding who will start under center in Week 1.

"The process with all our players is to come out and improve and get better each day," Ryans said. "When the fall comes, that's when we'll talk about starters and who are the best 11 men to go out there and help us win games."

"C.J. has been the same from the pre-draft process to now -- hard worker, very intelligent guy," Ryans said. "He's a true competitor. So, he's been the exact same guy… but it is exciting to see him out on the field working with his teammates. C.J. has been doing an excellent job these past couple days."
