Day two of the Houston Texans’ OTA’s flew by on Tuesday, with a few headlines emerging.

One of the biggest was Houston’s successful Super Bowl bid ahead of 2017, but outside of that, cornerback Brandon Harris had a rough collision with DeAndre Hopkins in what is supposed to be a ‘light practice’ at this point in the offseason. Meanwhile, Case Keenum is hot on the heels of T.J. Yates for the backup spot.

The Houston Chronicle has the details on Harris’ collision, he looks to be fine but is still being evaluated.

Andre Johnson hopes he’s still playing by Super Bowl LI. It’s a tough ask since some dont even bother to include him in the league’s top five receivers anymore. Johnson is 31, and still posting big time stats though.

Brooks Reed lined up at linebacker yesterday during OTA’s, according to the Texans’ official site. If you aren’t excited to see what Brian Cushing, Whitney Mercilus, Daryl Sharpton and Reed can produce in 2013 (or even in training camp), there’s something wrong with you.

I’ve always been into collecting baseball cards, but never football. If you are into the latter however, DeAndre Hopkins posed with 35 other rookies in Los Angeles a few days ago to join the long list of faces on Topps.
