Brock Osweiler's first day of training camp

Extremely comfortable.

That's how Brock Osweiler described how he felt following his first day of Texans training camp. He wasn't talking about the Houston heat, though he joked about that too.

"I didn't really think it was that hot," Osweiler said. "I don't know what you guys are talking about."

Osweiler was cool though, figuratively speaking, when it came to calling plays. After a five-week hiatus in between veteran minicamp and now, he still felt in control at the line of scrimmage and was pleased with the communication from coaches to him and from him to the players.

"Whenever you are in a new system, and you go on summer break and come back for training camp day one, you don't know how much is really going to stick," Osweiler said. "I felt extremely comfortable out there calling the plays, hearing the plays in the helmet. We audibled a few times at the line of scrimmage. I think most importantly our communication, whether that be in the huddle or at the line of scrimmage today, was really good. And, that's what we want to have."

When practice ended, Osweiler and the quarterbacks stayed after to throw additional routes to the tight ends. Chemistry is developing with Osweiler and the offense but there's still work to be done, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

"He's made progress every single day he's been here," O'Brien said Sunday. "Training camp is tough. There were some really good plays out there today, some plays – for everybody, not just Brock that we need to correct and get better. But a lot of good effort. I thought the operation of the offense was decent, especially with the first group. We're just looking to string another day together tomorrow."

The Texans continue training camp with practice on Monday at 8:30 a.m. at the Houston Methodist Training Center.
