-The Texans went through situational football once again under Bill O’Brien and worked on specific situations concerning the game. There was a calm among the team during practice which meant the team was back at work. The overall focus was on the upcoming week and the Atlanta Falcons coming to town.
-Akeem Dent returned to practice for the first time since day two of training camp. He was moving around fine despite an ankle injury that kept him out for
over two weeks.
-Xavier Su’a-Filo will be asked to do more for the offensive line heading into the second preseason game of the year. Su’a-Filo will start getting more
work at right tackle and moving around the offensive line.
-There is a glimmer of hope that Arian Foster and Andre Johnson will be ready to do some work this week to get ready for the next preseason game. Both have
been dealing with their own injuries and working slowly to come back to form.
-Offensive lineman Will Yeatmen is coming along from a concussion suffered during training camp. He is currently under concussion protocol mandated by the
NFL and Bill O’Brien said “He has definitely improved.”.
-Some Texans made it clear that they were not happy with their performance on Saturday night.
“Anytime you lose 30-to-nothing, it's bad. It's bad but at the end of the day it’s all things that we did the wrong way, wrong steps, communication, not
communicating, all things that can be fixed. We’re looking at it. If it's things that are self-imposed and we can fix it, that’s the only plus that I see.”
“It was, again, a disappointing performance. I thought we ran the ball well and did some good things up front, but a lot of things, the pass game, starts
with me in terms of stuff we can get better at. But that’s the best way to do it, come out today, get a good practice in, get some sweat, and competitive
plays out here on the field.”
“We have a long way to go. We got a lot of work to do. We get back to the drawing board, correct our mistakes of what we had for the next game.”
