The Houston Texans will continue to try to get majority of their work in prior to the preseason scheduled games. News came out earlier this week that the Texans would be traveling to San Francisco to hold joint practices with the 49ers prior to playing them in the first week of the preseason. Now the Texans will host the New Orleans Saints in joint practices prior to their August 20th preseason game.
The Texans will practice against the Saints at the Methodist Training Center which will more than likely be treated as game work for majority of the Texans veterans and starters.
Coach Bill O'Brien continues to push for joint practices during training camp in controlled situations to preserve his roster. Getting good work in is O'Brien's number one priority and this will lead to many of the Texans big named players limited work during preseason games.
