Texans Camp Report: Hopkins returns for Day 2

EMBED </>More Videos

Day 2 of Texans Training Camp with abc13.

DeAndre Hopkins treated the holdout like it was no big deal and so did his coach.

They're both right.

Hopkins day 1 "holdout", if you can all it that, ended today when he joined his team on the practice field.

"I'm a football player. That's what I do," Hopkins said after he hauled in a couple of touchdown passes from Brock Osweiler in team drills.

Bill O'Brien added, "It's good to have everybody out here."

Bottom line: the Texans need one of the great playmakers in the NFL.

Hopkins is back.

He told us he's sure that it'll all be OK in the long term, "Everything will work itself out."

When I asked for specifics he added that his agent and the Texans front office will take care of it.

Jadeveon Clowney told us with a smile that his 1 goal is to play all 16 games. He dropped some weight to get down to 265 pounds, with an emphasis on yoga and stretching to stay healthy.

Clowney seemed happy when he talked with us. His introduction to the NFL hasn't been easy, with one injury after another. If he can produce, the Texans defense can take a big step forward.

Bill O'Brien liked today's work. He thought it was crisp and well executed. You can tell when it's sloppy. Today was a good day.

Offensive tackle Derek Newton walked around the practice fields and watched today. Good to see him up and moving after he was carted off Sunday. O'Brien called him "day to day." Our first "day to day" of the 2016 season.

Last thought, Lamar Miller is a weapon. He can catch it and he can fly.

The Texans team speed upgrade is impressive in the early going.
