QB Brian Hoyer impressive on first day of Texans’ minicamp – by John McClain

"Quarterback Brian Hoyer put on an impressive performance on the first day of minicamp.The Texans moved practice inside their bubble because of a persistent rain, and Hoyer took advantage of the ideal conditions to complete passes all over the field.Because of the regular rotation involving Hoyer and Ryan Mallett, who are competing for the starting job, Hoyer worked with the first team on Tuesday. Mallett will be back with the first team Wednesday and Hoyer on Thursday – the last day of minicamp.“I wouldn’t read too much into which players ran with ones and twos,” coach Bill O’Brien said. “We feel very confident in both guys.”Mallett and Tom Savage, entering his second season, also threw the ball well."

Texans’ Bill O’Brien: Kevin Johnson has a really bright future – by Tania Ganguli of ESPN

"Though the Texans selected cornerback Kevin Johnson in the first round, their roster doesn’t have the urgency for him to play right away that comes with many first-round picks.Nonetheless, coach Bill O’Brien has liked what he’s seen out of Johnson.“Kevin Johnson is a young player who’s got a really bright future,” O’Brien said. “He’s learning the pro game. He’s got some really good guys to learn from in his coaches, obviously John Butler, but also Johnathan Joseph and Kareem Jackson.”Joseph and Jackson have been the Texans’ starters for the past four seasons and are entering their fifth as a tandem. More and more last season, the Texans moved Jackson inside with A.J. Bouye taking the outside role when Jackson was playing inside."
