Yesterday was the first day the new rookies and established members of the Houston Texans roster practiced together under the Bill O'Brien regime. Jadeveon Clowney started working with J.J. Watt and Mike Vrabel, the competition began for the QB1 spot, and undrafted free agents began fighting for potential roster spots. Oh, and Andre Johnson is a man of his word and missed the first day of OTAs like he said he would.

Today will be much like yesterday. We will update this page with tweets, videos, interviews, and news as it comes in through the mail room. Additionally, treat this as you would any open thread and post whatever morsels of truths you can stumble upon as you traverse the internet.
[UPDATE - 11:08 AM CT] J.J. Watt to line up outside, stand up in Texans' D?

"We speed up the process with which we give them information."-O'Brien on tempo of installing offense. #Texans— Drew Dougherty (@DoughertyDrew) May 28, 2014
O'Brien: RT Derek Newton had a good offseason, worked hard. But too early to make a final judgement. #Texans

O'Brien: Fitzpatrick/Keenum/Yates obviously ahead of Savage right now, knowledge-wise. #Texans— Drew Dougherty (@DoughertyDrew) May 28, 2014
Case threw a great hitch route to Lacoltan Bester on Marcus Williams. Ball on top of Bester coming out of his break. #Texans— Jayson Braddock (@JaysonBraddock) May 28, 2014

Tom Savage: "I haven't seen Houston yet." #Texans— Brian T. Smith (@ChronBrianSmith) May 28, 2014
We presume that Savage misspoke. He saw plenty of Houston when he was parachuted in off the cargo plane.

David Quessenberry has added muscle, asked about being in NFL weight room for a year. "I've gotten bigger & stronger" http://t.co/ITtcnH7Umd— Jayson Braddock (@JaysonBraddock) May 28, 2014
It's becoming more and more painfully obvious that the #Texans aren't allowed to speak any words that aren't cliche rhetoric— Jayson Braddock (@JaysonBraddock) May 28, 2014
Loose lips sink ships...and franchises.
[UPDATE 2:14 PM CT] Andre Johnson misses second day of OTAs, Texans remain silent
