The Texans' 2010 Training Camp presented by Comcast will begin in a matter of four days, with an open practice at 8 a.m. at the Methodist Training Center.
It seems like an eternity (though it's been more like seven months) since we last had football at Reliant Stadium. Players had a couple of months after the 2009 season to rest before the start of offseason conditioning. Since the end of mini-camp on June 16, the Texans' offices have been sparsely populated with the coaching staff away on vacation.
The coaches are back in the building today, getting started with their first meetings in more than a month as they prepare for the team's first practice on July 30. There's also a group of 30 fresh-faced interns who will help the team with marketing, public relations and football operations throughout training camp that started today. On top of all that, maintenance crews are in full force in the Budweiser Plaza and on the stadium floor setting up for Wednesday's MLS All-Star vs. Manchester United soccer game.
The buzz for the Texans' 2010 season is mounting outside of Reliant Stadium. It's picking up inside the stadium, too.
