Texans take field in West Virginia for training camp

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, West Virginia (KTRK) -- The Houston Texans will hold their 2017 summer training camp at the historic Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia this year.

It'll be the first time in the team's 15-year history that the team won't be training in Houston.

"In West Virginia that time of year, we have great weather," explained Habibi Said Mamone, a VP with the resort. "We don't have a lot of humidity. So, I think that's one of the main reasons. The Texans were looking to come to cooler weather."

Summer training runs from July 26th to August 17th.
