Texans Start a Three-Day Mini Camp

Texans players kicked off a three-day mini-camp today at Rice University, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports. According to McClain, nearly three dozen Texans participated on Monday, with quarterback Matt Schaub leading the offense and linebacker DeMeco Ryans the defense.

“I think when we get together like this not only is it good for our conditioning, but it’s also good for camaraderie,” Schaub said. “It’s always better to work with your teammates. We don’t know what’s going to happen or when so we have to be ready.”

Over the weekend, Texans cornerback Kareem Jackson told his hometown paper that these workouts have brought the team together.

“It is very frustrating not being able to be in contact with any of the coaches, but a lot of the players have taken over that leadership role and have organized little mini-camps for us,” said Jackson. “I will be heading to Texas next week for one. I think that, really, it has made the team more close-knit because we are all working together as a team. I don’t think there is any doubt we will be ready when this thing ends.”
