The timeline from now to training camp for Texans rookies

Organized team activities (OTAs) and minicamp are finished and training camp won't start until late July.

The Texans now have plenty of time off to re-charge and refresh before the 2019 begins again. The rookies, however, are going through it all for the first time, and head coach Bill O'Brien explained what he'd like them to do for the next six weeks.

"My recommendation is to always stay in Houston, to train in Houston," O'Brien said. "That doesn't mean you can't go home on the weekend or visit your family or significant others on the weekend or whatever, but I think it's very important to train in Houston for obvious reasons."

One of those reasons is staying acclimated to the heat and humidity. The first-year players will do work locally for another week or so with the strength and conditioning staff before they're on their own. But most, if not all, will heed O'Brien's advice and prep for training camp by working out here in town at NRG Stadium and the Houston Methodist Training Center.
