Here are your daily Houston Texans stories for Tuesday:
Clowney Completely Healthy by Tania Ganguli, ESPN
"Texans outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney said he is “100 percent” healthy after the team’s first organized team activities practice of 2016.Clowney missed two games due to a mid-foot sprain, which is also called a Lisfranc injury, at the end of the 2016 season. He did not play in the Texans’ regular-season finale and also missed the team’s playoff game because he couldn’t push off on the injured left foot. Clowney admitted to being frustrated that he couldn’t play in the game."
There are no more excuses for him. He needs to have double digit sacks this coming season.
Day one at OTA’s by Patrick Starr, State of the Texans
"Most of the spotlight is on Brock Osweiler and how his first day looked as the go to quarterback. Osweiler had an up and down day throwing the football but when he starting hitting passes in rhythm, the offense started to click in a hurry. There were some erratic throws with no receivers in the vicinity but that was soon discussed in between plays on the finer points of the offense."
Some ups and downs are to be expected for Osweiler early on. He is adjusting to a new system and new players, as are pretty much all of those new players (except DeAndre Hopkins).
Watt not at OTA’s by Kevin Boilard, 247 Sports
"Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt is still recovering from major offseason surgery and did not participate in the team’s first OTA practice on Monday, according to ESPN’s Tania Ganguli. Starting left tackle Duane Brown, who underwent quad surgery in January, also did not practice.Watt needed surgery after playing the 2015 season with five torn muscles, a broken hand and a herniated disc in his back, per ESPN."
He can sit out all of training camp if he wants to for all I care. He needs to be as close to 100% as possible and do whatever it takes to get there.
