Bill O’Brien puts no timetable on Texans’ quarterback decision – By Tania Ganguli of ESPN.com
"Monday marked the fourth of the Houston Texans’ 10 organized team activity practices, with the quarterback competition in full swing.Texans coach Bill O’Brien said he has no timetable on when he will select a starter.“It’s really early,” O’Brien said. “We do a lot of two-spot drills, so we’re getting both of those guys a lot of reps. Tommy Savage is getting a ton of reps, too. All three quarterbacks are getting a lot of reps. So far I would say all three guys have done a really good job this spring. They’ve been here every day, they’ve been working hard. It’s been good to see.”"
Observations from Day 4 of OTAs – By John Harris of HoustonTexans.com
"The Texans’ second week of Phase 3 began on Monday, otherwise known as the team’s fourth OTA (organized team activity). In other words, it’s practice without pads. With the rain now fully gone, it was the first opportunity for the media to see the team out on the practice fields. Here are some observations from Monday’s session.1. I can’t tell you how often I remember thinking about how difficult 2014 must have been for former Memphis safety Lonnie Ballentine. He got drafted, dream come true. Then, he got hurt and had to sit out the entire year. I knew that had to be such a rough season for him on a lot of different levels. As such, it’s been great to see him out on the field and competing hard. He had a great pass breakup during 7-on-7 as he inadvertently collided with one of the team’s rookie tight ends as he broke up the pass. The aggressiveness breaking on the ball was an excellent sign, but just being on the field each and every day is definite progress for Ballentine.2. Watching practice is one thing, but when CB Charles James is on the field, innocent bystanders, like us, can HEAR him more than any other during practice. It’s not a bad thing, he’s just extremely vocal with everything he does. I noticed, along with a few others I watched the workout with, that he was a pest. He was just always around the ball, breaking up a few passes and, generally, being a menace."
