After a well-deserved day off, the Houston Texans returned to practice today in helmet, shoulder pads, and shorts. Included in that return were injured veterans WR Andre Johnson, LT Duane Brown, and CB Kareem Jackson. As the team prepares for their first preseason game Saturday against the Carolina Panthers, it’s a positive that all three starters have recovered and rejoin the effort of preparing.
However, not all three players returned to take their full allotment of reps. In fact, only Brown took every snap he would normally take as the first team LT. AJ was limited on a play count similar to a pitcher in baseball while Jackson took roughly half his normal repetitions.
Regardless, all three were happy to be back at practice. Johnson commented, “It felt good. It’s always good to be back on the field. You don’t want to be over doing rehab while your teammates are still working, but it felt good to be back out here.” When asked, Brown added, “It feels great. You hate to see these guys go to work and sit on the sideline watching. I felt good today. I’m still out here trying to perfect my craft, get as good as I can. It felt great and it’s just good to get some work.” So in a nutshell, they felt good and great.
According to head coach Gary Kubiak, this morning’s practice was a bit sluggish but picked up the tempo as the day went along and the heat increased. Aside from a few minor heat issues, there were no injuries as a result of today’s practice.
