2014 Houston Texans Training Camp: Live Blog for August 2nd

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

Saturday may be an off day for most Texans fans, but the team itself is hard at work this morning as camp rolls on. If you have not already checked it out, read John Harris’ notes for day six of practice. This little nugget on Jadeveon Clowney is worth the read by itself.

The OLB finally visited 1-on-1 pass rush-land, which meant Jadeveon Clowney v. Duane Brown. They only got one rep against one another but it was three seconds of pure joy in my day. I heard the collision from 60 yards away and even though Clowney wouldn't have gotten a sack, he did make it tough work on Brown. Later in the drill, Clowney faced OT Matt Feiler and Clowney sped past the young rookie from Bloomsburg. I do have to remind myself that Clowney is a rookie as well.

One final note on Clowney...he's going to face smart tackles at this level, no question, but the first time that he throws his inside move on a tackle, it's going to result in a sack, a holding penalty or a pressure. While I was on the air, my man Drew Dougherty (@DoughertyDrew on Twitter) saw Clowney throw a spin move on a run drill and tackling the RB for a TFL. There's been plenty of "did you see that?" during No. 90's reps.
