Texans wrap up Week 1 of camp

The Texans wrapped up their first five days of training camp at The Greenbrier on Sunday. The team practiced in full pads for three consecutive days and will have Monday off after a productive week of camp in West Virginia.

"I think we've gotten a lot accomplished," head coach Bill O'Brien said Sunday. "A lot of situational football, third down, red area. A lot of different things that I'm not going to get into the details of that we're doing on both sides of the ball. These guys compete. That's the big thing. This is a very competitive football team and that's really – I mean, I can't wait to come to meetings and practice every day because I know these guys are going to do what we're asking them to do. They're a very coachable group, the whole group, and it's been a fun week so far."

O'Brien gave several veterans the day off from practice Sunday, allowing younger players to get more reps. Health is always a concern, but O'Brien plans to rotate training camp rest days for veterans and players who need it.

"I think about it in three-day blocks," O'Brien said. "So, maybe one out of three, I'll give them a day off here and there. Guys that are 10-plus years or certain players that need a break, that take a lot of reps in practice. So, we just kind of manage that as best we can."

The Texans will all get a mandatory day off Monday before returning to the practice field at The Greenbrier Sports Performance Center on Tuesday.
