Summer break has officially begun for Texans players - a day early.
Ten OTA sessions and two mandatory minicamp sessions later, Bill O'Brien sent off his players with an extra day off on Thursday. Most will make the most of the next six weeks, keeping up with a conditioning schedule of their own.
Arian Foster, who works out regularly at his brother's local gym, said his only plans were to "work out and get in great shape" during the time off.
J.J. Watt will return to his Wisconsin cabin, situated on 36 acres of land.
"I'm going to go back there and work out twice a day, like I do every year," Watt said Wednesday. "I'm going to walk around the land and enjoy the peace and quiet. I'm going to reconnect with my friends and family. Then I'm going to take advantage of opportunities that come my way. There are going to be some things for sure in L.A. but the bulk of it I will be back in Wisconsin focused on training."
The Texans will report back to NRG Stadium just before the start of training camp on August 1.
