Texans wrap up 2nd week of OTAs


The Texans finished their second week of OTAs (organized team activities) on Thursday at the Methodist Training Center.

With six practices now in the books, including three this week, the Texans will wrap up OTAs with four more practices from June 3-6. They will have a mandatory three-day mini-camp from June 11-13.

"I think it's been really good," Texans coach Gary Kubiak said. "I like the focus. It's a good group. They know how to work."

Kubiak said left guard Wade Smith was "nicked" on the elbow toward the end of Thursday's practice but should be fine. Other than that and the Tuesday calf injury that will sideline Arian Foster until training camp, the Texans made it through the week unscathed.

Tight end Phillip Supernaw and defensive lineman Sunny Harris have practiced since suffering foot injuries on the first day of OTAs last Monday. Rookie offensive tackle Brennan Williams, the Texans' third-round pick from North Carolina, is still rehabbing from a minor knee injury suffered in rookie mini-camp but could return next week.

Defensive end J.J. Watt said the Texans have great chemistry, which has been evident through two weeks of OTAs.

"We've got workers," Watt said. "We've got guys that are committed. We have guys who come out here every day and are focused on getting better and that's all you can do right now in this period, with no pads on. All you can do is focus on your technique and getting better."
