2014 Houston Texans OTAs: Updates, News And Open Thread

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

We'll update you as much as humanly possible on what's going on at the Texans' first OTAs under Bill O'Brien.

Firstly, check out Drew Dougherty's '5 things to watch' at OTAs.  This is what I'll most be looking for:

2. Savage Not Solo- During the three-day minicamp last week, rookie Tom Savage was the only quarterback on the premises. Now, he’ll join the mix with Ryan Fitzpatrick, Case Keenum and T.J. Yates. Those three have all started NFL games, and Fitzpatrick’s been in the League since 2005. The amount of reps Savage gets will be key, as the entire offense is learning a new system with head coach Bill O’Brien in place.

Our old pal Mike Kerns posted this on Twitter:

That's about it for now. We'll keep this updated as more news comes out. We've been hearing that talks with the media and any injury updates will be at the absolute minimum.
