Lots of news and interesting bits came out of OTAs today... at least more so than the usual premature speculation over player performances without pads.

David Quessenberry's progress
"This season is a possibility. I would not rule it out," O'Brien says about Quessenberry playing. #Texans— Tania Ganguli (@taniaganguli) June 8, 2015
Quessenberry says it will be "a special day" when (he specifies over "if") he returns in pads. #Texans— Deepi Sidhu (@DeepSlant) June 8, 2015
Quessenberry weighed 306-307 pounds before cancer diagnosis. Got down to 280s during chemo. #Texans— Deepi Sidhu (@DeepSlant) June 8, 2015
Miscellaneous player news
Chris Polk says LeSean McCoy and Arian Foster are similar guys. He said they're helpful. And he said they're clowns. #Texans— Tania Ganguli (@taniaganguli) June 8, 2015
Big theme in #Texans OTAs is more knowledge of offense yr 1 to 2. Oft described as complex. May help with fewer mistakes, ability to do more— Stephanie Stradley (@StephStradley) June 8, 2015
Accuracy has been Mallett's biggest issue in NFL and is one of his main hurdles in becoming #Texans' starter. He's been off and on in OTAs.— Brian T. Smith (@ChronBrianSmith) June 8, 2015
Limited at what you can see at OTAs but #Texans fans should be encouraged at how well Cushing is moving. Moving well is A Good Thing.— Stephanie Stradley (@StephStradley) June 8, 2015
Keith Mumphery continues to impress. He is able to compete against the veterans and have success. Route running is a plus for him. #Texans— PDS (@PatDStat) June 8, 2015
"John Simon really defines in many ways the type of player that we're looking for," O'Brien says of the OLB. #Texans— Tania Ganguli (@taniaganguli) June 8, 2015
That's about all I could find for now. OTAs continue tomorrow and pick up again on June 11th and 12th. Afterwards mandatory minicamp commences on June 16 through the 18th.
