“It was a good start to the first day in pads,” O’Brien said. “I thought that both sides of the ball had their moments. I think we’re a lot more physical on special teams, which is good to see. Goal line period – look, defense came out and did a nice job on the goal line – but I thought that the offense responded well during practice. So, I was pleased with the first day here of pads.”
The competition level intensified during both individual and team drills. The Texans defense enthusiastically celebrated goal-line stops. While not an easy task for any offense facing Houston’s front seven,
“(Savage) did a good job – led us down the field there in a competitive situation, connected with Hopkins a few times – looked good,” O’Brien said. “Deshaun did a good job too – led us down the field on a drive that he had. So, I thought it was a good day for both guys.”
The Texans continue with Day 4 of training camp at The Greenbrier Sports Performance Center on Saturday.
