Texans Morning Huddle – Hopeful For A Healthy Clowney


Today, we read up on the Houston Texans in rememberance of what Sundays used to mean, what they will mean, come August 30th when we’ll see them play their third preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers.

So remember, my friends, we may be starting a new work week but Sundays are coming.

Houston Texans hopefule Jadeveon Clowney will play Week 1 – by Frank Schwab

"“The Houston Texans got nothing out of the supremely talented No. 1 overall pick as a rookie last season. The outside linebacker’s injured knee never got right. The Texans, with an all-time great in J.J. Watt anchoring the defense, went 9-7 with almost no contribution from the top pick of the draft. Even though the Texans still have no enticing option at quarterback, on their most optimistic days they have to wonder if they can take the next step with Clowney on defense in 2015. He could end up making an enormous impact for the Texans once he can play again. If only it was that easy.”"

Texans coach Bill O’Brien like what he sees after last OTA – by John McClain

"“In his first season as the Texans’ coach, Bill O’Brien led them to a seven-game improvement and a 9-7 record. They missed the playoffs on the last Sunday of the season. After the Texans finished their 10 OTAs and with the three-day minicamp scheduled for next week, O’Brien likes what he sees of his team.”"

Both Mallett, Hoyer capable of being starter – by Deepi Sidhu

"“These two guys are competing really well; they’re very bright guys,” O’Brien said. “I think they’ve both had really good springs. I really do. I think whichever guy is the guy that ends up being the starter, he’ll do a good job for our football team. And whoever’s not the starter, is going to do a good job for our football team too. That guy might be named next week. He might be named after the Redskins three days of practice. It may be after the San Francisco preseason game.”"

Jaelen Strong learned ‘how to be a man’ at junior college – by Tania Ganguli

"Strong was asked what he learned by going to Pierce College. “How to be a man,” he said. “Going in there, I just had to do everything on my own. I just had to learn how to be a man.” Was that tough for you? “Of course it was tough. I was 17 when I was out there by myself. Had to pay all my bills, grow up kind of fast.”"
