2014 Houston Texans Training Camp: LIVE Updates for July 28th

Follow all the action at Houston Texans training camp LIVE on BRB!

Yesterday was a relatively busy day by football standards in summer. Cody White was waived injured after his devastating Achilles injury, Alan Bonner was released due to a fractured foot, and Anthony Dima just left the team altogether after not showing up to practice. With Bonner's release, the Texans' slot receiver competition is likely now down to Keshawn Martin and veteran Mike Thomas; Thomas has been impressing coaches on a regular basis since his signing following the 2013 season. In other news, here are some bullet points put together from everything we've seen on Twitter in the last two days:

1 - The heat is really getting to a lot of people. Players have routinely needed to be walked off the field by trainers to get fluids, and cramps have been a common issue thus far.

2 - Brian Cushing is limited in practice, but he still looks JACKED.

3 - The slot corner battle looks like a two horse race between A.J. Bouye and Andre Hal.

4 - Bill O'Brien is loud, and the players love it. His energy and intensity have been a remarkable change of pace from the Kubiak era, prompting even Andre Johnson to say it's something "that was needed around this place."

5 - Jadeveon Clowney is still half speed in drills while recovering from sports hernia surgery over the summer, but he has not had any setbacks in his rehab so far. With any luck he will be full go for the preseason in a couple weeks.

6 - DeAndre Hopkins is murdering people in one-on-ones....again.

7 - Ryan Fitzpatrick is clearly the best quarterback on the roster. Reports are universally positive about his performance so far in camp. We shall see if that holds up in actual game action this year.
