As per league rules restricted and unrestricted free agents are not allowed to practice until Thursday. According to CBSNews Houston this is not sitting well with CB Johnathan Joseph and SS Danieal Manning. Both players had to stand around and watch the rest of the team practice. When asked if he was ready to make a difference on the Texans defense Joseph replied, “No doubt!”. He has to field questions as to the team’s weakness on defense last season. He said that he quickly brushed those questions aside as he is simply trying to focus on the now.
Both players will join team practices on Thursday and will be ready for the preseason game against the Jets on the 15th.
