Texans Transcripts: August 13


How was practice today?

"It wasn't very good. So, we just have to get together this afternoon, figure it out and try to be better tomorrow."

What's it like having G David Quessenberry out here healthy and focused solely on football?

"I think he was out here last year, but yeah, it's a great story about David. David's an example of a guy that really everybody should look up to, a guy that tries to earn it every day, has come back from a really bad form of cancer, fought. Just a great guy to have on our roster right now."

What's the scouting report on WR Quan Bray?

"I don't know. We'll see. He showed up here. We think he's got a little bit of a skillset that can help us on offense and special teams and we'll see how it plays out."

What should fans be looking for in the second preseason game that you're looking to accomplish?

"More consistent play. Basically, operating better in all three phases, a cleaner game, things like that. I think these guys competed against Kansas City. I think the effort was really good, but just more consistent play."

What do you think about having the CE King High School players out here and donating your field to the school?

"I think it's great. I think high school football here in Houston is king, and I think that any time we can reach out to the high schools and help them out in the ways that we do – we do a great job headed by Jamey Rootes and his crew. They do a great job with community relations and I think the high school football is a big part of that."

What is your comfort with the new special teams rules and what you're seeing?

"I mean, it is what it is. So, the rules are what they are, so there's no – football's not comfortable. So, I think that it's just more about, 'OK, here are the rules.' We're teaching our players the rules, trying to get them to abide by the rules, understand the kickoff rules, the helmet rule. I think we do a good job of teaching it. I think it was officiated pretty well on the other night. So, we'll see how it goes. But, it doesn't matter about my comfort level, it's just the way it is. It is what it is."
