Bill O'Brien: Trip to Richmond will "help" Texans

The Texans are heading to Richmond.


Take a look at photos from the Houston Texans' third week of OTAs.

In early August, Houston will practice against Washington for three days in Richmond, and head coach Bill O'Brien thinks it's an important way to get ready for 2015.

"I do really believe in these joint practices," O'Brien said on Monday. "It's going to help our team."

O'Brien said the process of flying away, staying in a hotel, practicing against another "good football" makes the trip away feel "like a camp unto itself."


Last season, the Texans and Atlanta Falcons practice against each other at the Houston Methodist Training Center during the week prior to their preseason game.

O'Brien and company went on the road a few days later and spent the week practicing versus the Broncos at their facilities. Houston and Denver squared off in the third preseason game last August, with the Texans pulling out a victory.

That time spent working against the other two teams during the week was beneficial to the Texans, according to O'Brien.

The Texans hosted Washington in Week 1 of the regular season
