Training Camp 8/14/18: Notes and Quotes

The Texans got a lot of situational work accomplished during Tuesday's training camp practice, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

With the San Francisco 49ers headed to Houston for joint practices this week, both coaches have a plan in place for dealing with fights or any other illegal behavior on the field.

"If they do anything that would get them ejected in a game – Kyle (Shanahan) and I have already agreed on that – anything that would get them ejected in a game will get them ejected from practice," O'Brien said.

J.J. Watt practiced on Tuesday and is confident he will play in the Texans regular season opener against the New England Patriots.

Houston Dash star Kealia Ohai chatted with her boyfriend after practice.


Undrafted rookie tight end Jevoni Robinson passed his physical and was moved to the active roster. The 6-8, 225-pound Robinson played basketball at NC State.

Several players did not practice, including Jadeveon Clowney, Whitney Mercilus and Seantrel Henderson.

"We have three weeks until the first game so we're just trying to do a good job of managing reps," O'Brien said. "Everybody's in a different category relative to how many reps they get during the week, during a practice. So, we're just trying to do that. We have two big practices coming up with San Francisco that'll be a lot more than what you saw out here. So, trying to get guys ready for that too."

Watt and Reader did a joint press conference together entertaining the media with fun facts about each other. Watt enjoys 90's hip-hop and Reader is a messy locker mate.

Cornerback Aaron Colvin had a nice pass breakup during drills.

Dylan Cole says Benardrick McKinney is a great teammate and leader, but definitely not as quiet as some may think.

McKinney says the linebacker room is talented on and off the field. Adds that Cole can sing.

Several players, including McKinney, like to practice their quarterbacking skills after practice and try and hit an upright on the field goal post. Today, Brian Peters actually did so, hitting the right side, and got a high five from Deshaun Watson.
