On Travis Johnson
Coach Gary Kubiak revealed that NT Travis Johnson is sitting out OTAs due to hamstring, pelvis, and knee issues.
Johnson is also in a contract season, but hasn't played consistently enough to be a candidate for an extension. He's still likely to start this year. Source: houstontexans.com
On Steve Slaton
Steve Slaton says he gained nine pounds of muscle this offseason.
"I had a little problem with third-and-short, and that’ll hopefully help me move the pile a little bit more," he said. The Texans would prefer another back to emerge as a short-yardage specialist, but Slaton should get a chance. Source: houstontexans.com
