Denver (CBS Houston) – Editor’s Note: Camp Confidential will feature daily news and notes throughout Texans training camp.
Here is what you need to know about today’s practice:
>>>The Texans and Broncos second day of practices with each other got chippy toward the end. At one point in the final 11-on-11 drill of the day, Denver cornerback Aqib Talib, picked up an incomplete pass and threw the ball at DJ Swearinger, who was mouthing off on the sidelines, as his custom.
Both sidelines cleared but no punches were thrown. Texans players dismissed it as simply competitive players going at it at the end of along day.
>>>Andre Johnson looked even sharper in today’s practice, routinely catching balls from Ryan Fitzpatrick in 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 drills. Johnson said he took more reps today than he has in any day of camp.
When asked if he might play Saturday against the Broncos, Johnson said that decision is not up to him, but he added, “I’m feeling fine. I know that, if I had to, I can go out and play.”
>>>Chris Myers missed practice again, watching from the sidelines for the second straight day in Denver. Coach Bill O’Brien insists Myers is not hurt. He says the Texans just want to make sure he’s ready for the season opener September 7th against the Redskins.
>>>Jadeveon Clowney started practice in pads with the rest of his teammates. But by the end of the workout, he was watching from the sidelines in shorts and a t-shirt. Clowney left practice midway through with one of the team’s athletic trainers. He didn’t appear to be limping. Following practice, coach O’Brien said he wasn’t sure why Clowney left early.
>>>J.J. Watt and Broncos tackle Chris Clark got into it early in the offensive and defensive line drills. Clark shoved Watt after the whistle and knocked his helmet off. But Watt merely laughed it off, telling Clark not to complain if he’s getting beat.
