Houston Texans Set to Have Joint Training Camp

The Houston Texans will host a joint training camp this preseason. They will team up with the Atlanta Falcons and Denver Broncos team officials announced yesterday.

On Aug. 13 and 14, the Houston Texans will and Falcons will practice together at the Houston Methodist Training Center. The Falcons are the team that will be showcased on HBO’s Hard Knocks during training camp. It’s likely you will be able to see the Texans practicing against them during the show.They will face off against each other on August 16th at NRG Stadium.

To continue the theme of joint training camp, the Texans will travel to Colorado. They will be part of three sessions with the Denver Broncos at the Broncos facilities in Englewood, Colorado.  Those sessions will begin on August 19, and run through the 21st.

Following the three day session, the Houston Texans will play their third preseason game against the Broncos. Although it is a preseason game, it will be a good measuring stick for the Texans as the Broncos are the reigning AFC champions. The game will be played on Aug. 23 at Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium, and will feature both team’s starters for the majority of the game.

This is the first time the Texans will be holding a joint training camp since 2010. It is a crucial training camp for the Texans as their are a lot of question marks surrounding the team.

The QB battle will take place during these camps and preseason games. Case Keenum and other quarterbacks will look to win the starting job. Andre Johnson’s status will most likely be in the air as well. The star wide receiver is not happy with the current situation in Houston, and I believe the fourteen game losing streak to end the season last year really took a toll on the star.

Rookie head coach Bill O’Brien will also be feeling his way around the field with his new team. Training camp will be a bit of a learning curb as O’Brien will be looking to implement his philosophies to the squad.
