As the investigation is underway, the NFL says Deshaun Watson is not restricted from training camp with the Houston Texans.

Despite the 22 active civil cases filed against Deshaun Watson, the NFL has “no limits” on the quarterback’s involvement in club activities, according to a statement released Tuesday by the league.
On Wednesday, the Houston Texans will have their first training camp session.
The first of 23 lawsuits against Watson was filed in April.
Watson is currently facing 22 lawsuits alleging sexual assault or sexually inappropriate behavior during massage sessions.
“The NFL’s investigation into the serious allegations against Deshaun Watson is still ongoing,” the league said in a statement.
“We’re collaborating with the Houston Police Department to make sure the NFL’s investigation doesn’t interfere with theirs.”
“We will make appropriate actions in accordance with the Collective Bargaining Agreement and the Personal Conduct Policy as we continue to acquire new information and monitor law enforcement developments.”
“At this point, Watson’s involvement in club activities remains unrestricted.” According to a league source, the NFL has been denied access to speak with several of the plaintiffs who filed the civil complaints, as well as third parties who may have pertinent information.
The NFL has also been denied access to evidence acquired by authorities throughout their inquiry.
Two of the ten women who have filed complaints with Houston police have not filed lawsuits against Watson, according to Rusty Hardin of ESPN.
On the active roster, the Texans have three quarterbacks: Tyrod Taylor, rookie Davis Mills, and Jeff Driskel.
