Rookie linebacker Brian Cushing is an animal on the field. The Texans aren't wearing pads during OTAs and you still can see that he wants to rip people apart. Where does that non-stop motor come from? Cush says a lot of it has to do with what he eats. He blogs about being uber strict about his diet.
The Texans will host the New Orleans Saints for a week of training camp practices leading up to their Aug. 22 preseason game at Reliant Stadium. Last year, the Texans traveled to the Saints' practice facility in Metairie for three days of two-a-days.

Houston signed a four-year deal with rookie cornerback Brice McCain. He is the first rookie to ink his deal.
