The #Texans LB group young/little depth. By day 2 of camp, LB coach Reggie Herring is losing his voice. Perhaps related?

Duane Brown is so much faster than last year. On a play he was pulling, his acceleration was impressive for the 300 lbs. tackle. #Texans

J Joseph had been covering Hopkins majority of situations. Breaking the rookie in and making him work. #Texans
Quote:
Tough day for the rookie vs. JJo. @PatDStat How does Hopkins look in his routes and being covered by JJO?
Collins has trouble with the short routes out of the backfield but he can run with TEs and RBs in downfield routes. Sleeper. #Texans

One player to watch is Cameron Collins. The ILB has increased practice time with Sharpton out. He has good coverage skills.

Watt is a head worker out there. He sets the tone for the defense, and him and Earl Mitchell are always talking to each other. #Texans

I would talk about J.J. Watt but hearing that the offensive line can't handle him would be nothing new. #Texans

Jeff Maehl has quietly had a good camp. 3rd year in and has been here for a reason. He can double as a teams coverage player and WR. #Texans

Rookie WR Andy Cruse keeps making solid strides. He is a big WR that the DBs have a hard time stopping. #Texans

NT David Hunter was giving the offense fits today. He was doing what he wanted to today in team sessions. Constant disruption. #Texans

Stephen McGee and Case Keenum have also looked sharp. They will be a camp battle to watch. #Texans

T.J. Yates' delivery looks much better than I remember. Good velocity and getting it to his WRs in stride. #Texans

Schaub has looked good with Daniels and Johnson. He is still working to get in tune with Hopkins. #Texans

Probably been most impressed with the quarterback play these two days. #Texans

Two days for Keshawn Martin where he has stood out in the passing game. Looks much more comfortable with his role. #Texans

Rookie TE Ryan Griffin showed today why he could be a good pick. He uses his 6-6 frame well against defenders to make catches.

Kareem Jackson vs. Andre Johnson has become one of the fun matchups to watch on the field. #Texans
Quote:
@PatDStat Does Kareem hold his own? Yes.
Owen Daniels made some outstanding catches today. Matt Schaub and him were making some nice plays. #Texans

Practice in the books. Team looked sharp especially the offense through the air. #Texans

Lots of leadership talk today. Foster mentioned #Texans are turning into a team where coaches don't have to lead much, players handle it.

"He’s a leader by example, just kind of like Cush. Guys just naturally follow him. Whatever he says, people listen." B Reed on Watt #Texans

"Brian Cushing’s back, and he’s going to bring the attitude back," Brooks Reed. #Texans

Greg Jones said practices are different here than Jacksonville. Said it's a good difference. #Texans

Brooks Reed talked about JJ Watt taking over Cushing's pregame speech role last year. Thinks Watt practiced speeches in the mirror #Texans

Foster said because of the calf injury he's had time to reinvent himself as an athlete. He's better in a lot of ways #Texans

Arian Foster spoke today. Couldn't give specifics on calf other than it's better not to rush an injury like that.

“There’s just some light soreness in there. I can pretty much do everything, so we’re just going to take it day by day.” - Arian Foster

Foster added that every year you have to do something different to get better as an athlete and can't be complacent. #texans #texanstalk

Foster put in an unreal offseason of training. Said he was only disappointed "for an hour" after injury. Moved forward immediately
