“Derek Newton is our starting right tackle," head coach Bill O'Brien said on Friday. "He’s had a good offseason."
"He’s been here since the day that I arrived here," O'Brien said. "He’s been working out, and when April 7th hit, he was here every day and he hasn’t missed a day. He’s been healthy and hopefully in continues that way. I think he’s practiced well and we’re looking forward to seeing how he does in training camp.”
Newton and the Texans will go through a minicamp on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of this week. They won't practice on the field together again until training camp starts in late July.
