2013 Houston Texans Rookie Mini-Camp Roundup: Day Two And Day Three Open Thread

Bob Levey

Day Two of the Texans' rookie mini-camp is over, and their first two draft picks continue to impress. Get the full scoop here whilst you discuss the happenings of Day Three.

We'll start with Nick Scurfield via the mothership.

Texans rookie T Brennan Williams fine after MRI on knee.

Williams, who will compete for the Texans' starting right tackle job this season, left the morning rookie mini-camp practice early with a knee injury. He had an MRI that revealed no major damage and will resume football activities next week.

DeAndre Hopkins back at practice, continues to impress.

The first-round draft pick from Clemson continues to catch everything in sight.
"Obviously, he’s got great ball skills and he works hard," Texans offensive coordinator Rick Dennison said. "We’re putting a lot on these guys and he’s working at it. He has good size, good ball skills and he’s getting better."

D.J. Swearinger a quick study in Texans rookie mini-camp.

"Swearinger is a really good athlete and made a really nice interception this morning," [Texans defensive coordinator Wade] Phillips said. "He seems to be feeling the defense real well… He’s very instinctive. He’s just learning the defense like everybody else, but he seems to catch on quickly, and he made an interception today where he was playing in another area but made the play. He’s a naturally good player that needs to keep developing, but we like him."

A couple of tidbits from Stephanie Stradley:

Starting to sense a pattern here...

When Brooks was drafted last year, you'll recall that he weighed a staggering 353 pounds. Has he dropped down to a svelte 320? Stay tuned.

She also snapped an interesting picture of DeAndre Hopkins.

And finally a bit from Tania Ganguli:

Their competitiveness will only make both players better. Hopefully it will light a fire under Keshawn Martin and Lestar Jean.

That's about it, fellas. Post any interesting news on day three in the comments. Now, go give your mothers a kiss.
