Houston Texans News

I Love the Sound of Pads Clashing Together in the Morning. Sounds Like Football.

BRB has got you covered on day four of Training Camp. The boys in steel blue will put the pads on today.


The Mothership Has Landed.

ESPN will be at Texans training camp all day today. I assume the questions will somehow come back to Tim Tebow in some way. They always do.


Report From Day Three.

ABC 13's David Nuno has a full rundown from day three of Texans Training Camp, Including a focus on David Quessenberry, who got first team reps during the offseason.

Side note: Is Coach Kubiak slowly turning to R. Lee Ermey?


Another Texan Heads North.

Antoine Caldwell, a former Texans third round draft pick from 2009, has found work with the Buffalo Bills.


Around the League

The NFL Returns With A Vengeance.

We aren't even a week into training camp and key players are dropping like flies. Percy Harvin may have a torn labrum. We know for sure that the Eagles' top receiver since 2009, Jeremy Maclin, is out for the year with a torn ACL. The Ravens' starting tight end, Dennis Pitta, has fractured and dislocated his hip and will we be out the entire season. Dan Koppen, the Broncos' starting center, will also be out the entire season with a torn ACL.


New City, Same Story.

Stop me if you've heard this before. Mario Williams is being held back at Training Camp to prevent further injury. This time, Williams has a sore foot. Williams lead the team in sacks last season with 10.5 while dealing with a wrist injury.


Davis is a Stand-Up Guy.

Vernon Davis is continuing to get reps standing up off the line at 49ers camp. It appears Jim Harbaugh wants to use the tight end in a more wide receiver-like role with Michael Crabtree out. It makes sense to get an athletic target downfield for Colin Kaepernick.


McNabb Calls It Quits...Finally.

Did you know that technically Donovan McNabb was still attempting to get a job for the past two seasons? McNabb went on television this past year while waiting for a call to come back to league. I guess no one needs a ball throw at the receiver's feet? McNabb will officially retire with the Eagles today.
