Here are your daily Houston Texans stories for Tuesday:
Osweiler Reacts to Elway’s Comments by Aaron Wilson, Houston Chronicle
"In the wake of Broncos general manager John Elway noting his surprise that Osweiler was “bent out of shape” to be taken out of the starting lineup, Osweiler attempted to turn the page while acknowledging the obvious.“The only thing I would say is what kind of competitor wouldn’t want to play in that situation?” Osweiler said. “Outside of that, I think I’ve answered all of those questions. We’re now in August, we just had a great training camp practice and I’m excited to play the 49ers coming up.”"
I agree with Osweiler here. Naturally as a competitor he didn’t want to be taken out of the lineup, and I totally think it had something to do with him signing with Houston. It just makes the Monday Night game in Denver this season even more juicy.

Williams Gets Chills at Practice by Aaron Wilson, Houston Chronicle
"Once a truck driver in upstate New York who rose at dawn to bring hamburger buns to Five Guys and make deliveries to other local businesses, the 25-year-old undrafted rookie from Syracuse, N.Y., is hoping he sticks in the NFL as a dynamic kick returner and reserve wide receiver.“I love it,” Williams said. “Every time I walk on the field, I feel chills. I was driving a truck, but it made me who I am today. I went through a lot of ups and downs in my life.”"
This sounds like a Vince Papale story. Remember that movie Invincible with Mark Wahlberg? Yeah, that’s guy. Rooting for this underdog.
"4. Speaking of Blue, we talked with general manager Rick Smith today (which we do daily on Texans Training Camp Live at 8:45 am on SportsRadio 610) and he mentioned the work that Blue did to get himself ready for the 2016 season. The end to the 2015 season showed that Blue had the potential to be a fit for this team for a while. He can do the dirty work things that most running backs won’t do or can’t do…for example, blitz pickup. I think he’s going to surprise fans when they get to see him this preseason."
If it helps Alfred Blue make the team, fellow editor Randy Gurzi will not be pleased.
