Tonight the B-Straw & Pauly G Show Road Trip went to Denver for the third day of Texans and Broncos practice. They spoke to James Palmer, CSN Houston, who is in Denver about what happened at practice. Palmer thinks that the reason guys like Chris Myers are sitting out is because he already knows they are on the team and so he is focusing on playing more guys who are on the bubble and still have to make their mark. He thinks Arian Foster is looking really good despite not saying much to the media. He gave updates of how several of the veteran players have been doing in practice this week.
Tonight The B-Straw & Pauly G Show Road Trip traveled to Denver for Day 2 of the Texans practices with the Broncos. James Palmer, CSN Houston, had the scoop from Denver.

Palmer talked about JJ Watt beating everyone at practice and being all smiles about it. He said that Fitzpatrick was looking pretty good at practice and was really accurate with the football today.

The B-Straw & Pauly G Show Road Trip will be spending most of the week in Denver touching on Texans practices there. Today the guys checked in with James Palmer of CSN Houston for his observations. He talked about all the guys coming back from injuries and looking good on the field today especially Arian Foster. Palmer said the team has felt very frustrated with Louis Nix’s injury issues. He discussed how tight lipped the Broncos have been about tweeting from practice.
