Day Two: Waiting to put the big boy pads on.

 

 

Day two had a scare for the Texans, well more a concern really.. Right off the bar to kick off the bad; Arian Foster was taken off the field and hauled away on a cart. He did however return to the huddle later in the practice. Texans fans would prefer not to see this, regardless of the cause. As far as coach O’Brien is concerned? “Is Arian (Foster) OK? As far as I know.” Get used to this folks, O’Brien holds any injury information very close to the chest. Speaking of injuries we had two very unfortunate ones. Cody White tore his Achilles and Alan Bonner broke his foot. That was from day one, and both have been placed on waivers. If they clear waivers they’ll go to injured reserve. Bonner you may recall spent all of last season on IR with hamstring issues.

The best quote of the day has to go out to veteran center Chris Myers. “It seems like a little bit of an introduction to the start of camp, but it doesn’t really start until tomorrow until you put the big boy pads on.” when asked about how the first two days of camp went. Install and running through the motions is fine and dandy, but once the pads go on, it gets real.

For all players and coaches involved, this is part of the ramp up as the Texan players make the transition into what O’Brien is looking for out of the team. Many players are fighting to just make the team while veterans such as J.J. Watt are working on the finer points of their craft and figuring out how the skills they have can be used best in the new system. Obviously that process is going to take most of the month to really get into season shape but by all accounts the team is coming together nicely. Loud coaches with loud music and cheering fans. Not a bad way to spend a late July Sunday.
