Houston (CBS Houston) – Sam Montgomery will start training camp on the non-football injury list after showing up out of shape. A third round pick with big expectations not being ready for camp didn’t sit too well with JJ Watt.
“I’ve talked to Sam and we’ve had the conversations and we’re going to get him right, don’t worry about that” said Watt. “He’s got the athletic talent, he’s got the ability, and that’s my job as a veteran leader, to instill that drive and that work ethic.”
For Sam Montgomery this week has been a wakeup call. There were question marks about his work ethic coming out of LSU but the Texans decided to look past them, something they rarely do.
“He got taught a lesson. I think that needed to happen for him early on, you don’t want that to happen later on when you take things for granted.” said Antonio Smith
