What do you expect from Ben Jones at LG? Is it concerning 1st team O isn’t getting many preseason snaps as a unit? #SOTTexans

Ben Jones is a mixed bag as an offensive lineman. Jones is one of the quicker offensive lineman the Texans have and really helped out at right guard in 2012. One position is going to help Jones because he has worked three different positions during training camp. He has the tendency to play high and get knocked around in the run game, but playing next to Duane Brown and Chris Myers could help him. Either way, expect Wade Smith to take back his position if and when he returns from his knee issue.
Only one preseason game, but expect the offense to go one quarter against Miami. In the third preseason ...

Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak is hoping that running back Arian Foster will return to practice on Monday.
Foster is currently nursing back injury. His calf is fine, according to John McClain if the Houston Chronicle.
It’s certainly not a good sign that Foster has been out with a few injuries already. They’re probably going to need Ben Tate to also stay healthy and...

Houston Texans cornerback Brandon Harris took some time to talk to us at training camp. We talked about how his camp is going, fellow Miami alum Ed Reed and more.
You can follow Patrick on Twitter. He is the Editor of State of the Texans.
Back in May Houston Texans' running back Arian Foster suffered a strained calf, and the injury bothered the back enough over the summer to cause Foster to begin camp on the team's PUP list. On August 2 it appeared Foster's calf was fully healed and he was going to return to practice, but then the team reported Foster would miss some time with back soreness. The injuries...
Preseason game number two is upon us and the Houston Texans will make their first appearance at Reliant Stadium on Saturday. The Miami Dolphins are coming to town and it will be a good test for a Texans team that will extend their starters’ playing time to get them ready for week one.

Coming in the wake of recent video upgrades at Minute Maid Park and Toyota Center, Reliant’s new boards stretch 277.17 feet (92.4 yards, almost the length of a football field) by 52.49 feet above each end zone. Each covers 14,549 square feet with 5.28 million pixels of high-definition...

The Houston Texans have unveiled two massive new video board screens that cost a whopping $16 million in taxpayer money. They are the biggest in the world.
Deion Sanders used to do it. We have seen Mike Vrabel do it. Why not JJ Watt? Arguably the best DL in the game wants a shot on offense now too.
“I’ve been lobbying since day one,” Watt said after the morning practice. “It hasn’t worked yet, so I don’t think it’s going to work anytime soon. But it’s (Kubiak’s) team.”
Kubiak has not ruled out using the...
