Bill O'Brien held an extended practice Sunday morning, the longest of this year's training camp.
"We had to get a lot of things covered," O'Brien said Sunday. "We installed two-minute, had a number of different two-minute situations today. We installed some different defenses and some different things on offense so it just took a bit longer to get all that done."
Players, wearing helmets and shells, practiced for nearly two and a half hours. Prior to Sunday, the Texans had been wearing full pads since Day 3 of training camp, for four consecutive practices. Despite a long morning outside, O'Brien was pleased with what they were able to accomplish in their two-minute work.
"Overall, I think there was some good there," O'Brien said. "I thought the first drive, offense was able to move it. It was a field goal situation. We were able to get in field goal range and make the game-winning kick. Thought that was good. Defensively, at the end there we stepped up, did some decent things so I think both sides walked off the field today, some good and some bad, and just keep trying to get better every day."
On Monday, the Texans get a much-needed break from the heat and will move practice to their indoor facility at the Houston Methodist Training Center. On Friday, the team will holds one joint practice with the San Francisco 49ers in Santa Clara. The Texans open their 2016 preseason against the 49ers on Sunday at Levi's Stadium with kickoff set for 6 p.m. CT.
