For the first time since December 22, J.J. Watt suited up in a Deep Steel Blue Texans jersey.
He and the defense have worn the Liberty White tops in OTAs, minicamp and training camp practices since head coach Bill O'Brien came to town. But this morning there was a change.
"We felt like it was a good time to divide the team up into a blue and a white team," O'Brien said. "Basically, have a scrimmage without pads on."

Under mostly overcast skies, with temperatures staying in the 80's, the team went through the morning work. The starters were in blue, while the reserves were in white. O'Brien liked what he saw.
"We're able to accomplish a lot of different situational work," O'Brien said. "It's good because situational work is all about the coaches and players getting on the same page. Eventually you want it where the players are thinking exactly like the coaches and vice versa. That is what we tried to simulate today, and it is a work in progress, but I thought we were able to get a lot accomplished today."
The Texans face the Cardinals in Arizona this Saturday night.
