OTAs for your Houston Texans in 2014 enter their third day today. If you're looking for updates on the first two days of OTAs under Bill O'Brien, I humbly suggest you check out this post or this post. Just don't expect much in the way of earth-shattering quotes or substantive injury updates; that doesn't appear to be the way things will be done under Bill O'Brien. And don't you dare ask about motorized transport to and from the practice field.
"I mean, don’t make — we’re going to practice," O’Brien said. "We go in the locker room. They put their stuff on, they grab their helmet, they walk out the door, they go right down to the right and they walk over that bridge over the highway and then get to the practice field and we start practicing.
"I mean, come on now, guys. Don’t make that a big deal (Wednesday), please. That is not a big deal."
As is the style of the times, we will update this page with tweets, videos, interviews, and news as it rolls in. In the meantime, treat this as you would any other Texans open thread on BRB and post whatever news, rumors, or items you come across in your search for insight about the Houston Texans.
