Default Mini-Camp Day 2

Xavier Adibi injured his hamstring today. Only under 200 reps too. They say it's minor but I'm still concerned because maybe he's trying too hard to keep up with the NFL speed and injured himself in the process.

Heh. I know. I know. I'm just really excited and can't wait until open practice camp starts.

That’s part of it, but it’s nothing bad. So we expect him to go on the 19th (of May).”

Check this commentary on the state of our guys by Jerome Solomon...

http://blogs.chron.com/jeromesolomon..._minicamp.html

I know some of you can't stand him for some of the things he's written in the past, but if he's impressed with our guys conditioning...

Quote:

There was a time the majority of Texans' starters would have had trouble making some of the above rosters, so you know the backups had no chance.

That is no longer the case. The Texans are no longer a group of questionable draft picks and veteran castoffs. This team is the fastest, strongest and most athletic team the Texans have ever had.

Think I'm exaggerating, just think of the players you project to be No. 2 or 3 on the Texans' depth chart this season. Then compare those players to the starters a few years ago, and I'm thinking this year's reserves might be better than those starters. (In fact I'm going to do that next week to check the accuracy of my hypothesis.)

If you watch Jethro Franklin and Alex Gibbs at practice, you know the Texans will be nasty in the trenches.
This team will not be pushed around anymore.

Ooooooooo! Ya gotta like that.

Day 3 from HT.com, some good updates:

Quote:
Gary Kubiak:
(on if any rookies stood out) “No, I would just say that we felt good looking at all of them. I wish (Xavier) Adibi could’ve gotten all those reps that those other kids had got, but that’s part of it. But what we thought we saw when we drafted them is exactly what they are, so now we’ve just go to get them to fit in with this football team. And they can all help this team. That’s the key, so we’ve just got to get them going.”

(on DT Frank Okam getting more reps because of DT Travis Johnson’s wedding) “Well, we’re impressed with him. I mean, he’s a very big man. He’s 345 pounds. You normally don’t find guys that size that are athletic, too, you know, and he’s got a lot of ability. He’s very smart, so he picked up what we’re doing real quick. Local kid, so it’s very exciting for him to be playing in the state of Texas. We’re counting on him. Travis’s wedding was his gain. He got a lot of reps.”

(on if there was a difference in T Duane Brown from the first day to now) “I could tell a difference in him from practice to practice. Like I said, we won’t get there with him until he gets all those reps. Going against Mario (Williams) every day, Mario is impressive in this camp. I tell you, he’s an impressive young man right now. And y’all can see it, watching him practice and how he’s going about it, and if Duane has to see him on a daily basis, he can’t help but get there.”

(on DE Mario Williams’ improvement) “That light went on for Mario somewhere last year about Week 7 or 8. Everybody saw it, and if you watch practice right now you see him at another level. I think the sky’s the limit for him. I don’t want to sit here and say too much; I just love the way he works. I love the way he handles himself. Football is very important to Mario, and he’s working his way toward a big, big year.”

Ephraim Salaam:
(on how Brown is adjusting to the pro level) “I asked (Duane) yesterday after practice, ‘Did you guys practice this fast in college?’ He was like, ‘The games weren’t even this fast.’ So the new terminology and the speed of practice, it’s heavy, it’s tough, especially for a left tackle in this league. To just come in and get all this thrown on you, plus to be on the edge by yourself – he’s handling it alright. There are some things he needs to work on, but that’s what we’re all here for.”
