Texans quarterback competition resumes; Clowney expected back Aug. 17
Texans quarterbacks Ryan Mallett and Brian Hoyer are downplaying their competition for the starting spot, but Texans head coach Bill O'Brien responded to their critics Sunday.
"I take a lot of pride in both of those guys," O'Brien said. "I know both of those guys very well. I read. I understand what's written out there. Sometimes it (ticks) me off to be honest with you. You know because these are two guys that are good quarterbacks that have played in this league. They work very hard. They're out here busting their () to get better and I think the city of Houston should be proud of both of them."
Clowney expected to begin practice Aug. 17
Texans coach Bill O'Brien's goal is to have outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney practicing on Aug. 17.
O'Brien discussed Clowney's expected return on Sunday after Houston's second day of camp.
The No. 1 overall pick in last year's draft was placed on the physically unable to perform list just before camp began.
Clowney played just four games as a rookie last season before having season-ending microfracture surgery in December. The Texans have said that his rehabilitation from that surgery is going well and they hope that he'll be ready to play in the season opener.
The Texans' first preseason game is Aug. 15 and they open the season on Sept. 13 against the Chiefs.
