Kubiak Has Post Lockout Workout Plans Already in Place

Texans head coach Gary Kubiak has plans in place for when the lockout ends, and for the challenge of practicing against Wade Phillips’ 3-4 defense, reports John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

“The most important thing is to get our guys in here, whether it’s a week or three days before we go to training camp, so we can check them out and find out where our injured players are and what kind of shape everybody’s in,” Kubiak said. “The first three or four days of camp are going to be different than in the past because we haven’t seen these guys.”

Texans players, led by quarterback Matt Schaub and inside linebacker DeMeco Ryans, have held a series of voluntary workouts at Rice University from March through late June.

“We want to find out where we are physically and how fast everybody can go once we get things started,” Kubiak said. “I won’t have time to be upset with somebody because he didn’t work out as hard as somebody else. We’ll get that over real quick and get to work.”

With only three games on the regular season schedule against 3-4 defenses, the Texans will have to change how they practice this season.

“Our practice habits are going to do a 360 because of the way our team has changed,” Kubiak said. “That’s going to be the challenge.”

On the bright side, those three games — at Miami and home against Pittsburgh and Baltimore — come in the first six weeks of the season, so practicing against the 3-4 in August should be helpful in preparing for three very tough games.
