Rain doesn't put damper on Day 4

Even wet weather couldn't put a damper on the Texans, who practiced in full pads on Saturday morning. The intermittent rain provided its own challenges but didn't slow the tempo of Day 4 training camp practice.

"As long as there's not lightning, it's really important to practice in the rain because – when we go to Seattle, which is way down the road, but there's potential that it could rain there," head coach Bill O'Brien said. "So, we need to handle the elements better, especially offensively, then we did today. We've got to catch the ball better, throw the ball better, just overall handle the ball better. So, I think it's good to be out in the rain."

The Texans will travel to Seattle in Week 8 to play the Seahawks. Until then, players will get opportunities to work in the rain when possible, as long as no lightening is present. With wet conditions, there is a higher chance of players slipping on the field. However, O'Brien tries to use that as a teaching lesson too.

"No, I try not to worry about things like that because when you start to worry about things like that, they happen," O'Brien said. "It's important to make sure you coach the guys up on getting their feet up underneath them, and like I said earlier, handling a wet ball and those types of things. It's an important thing."

The Texans continue with Day 5 of training camp at The Greenbrier Sports Performance Center on Sunday.
