Texans | Joppru makes it through training camp practice healthy

Fran Blinebury, of the Houston Chronicle, reports Houston Texans TE Bennie Joppru made it through a training camp practice Friday, July 28, the first time he's participated in a training camp drill healthy. Joppru, who was taken in the second round of the 2003 draft, was placed on Injured Reserve in 2003 and 2005 before the season started. In 2004, he was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list after injuring his groin in a minicamp workout. Joppru said, "Go crazy, feel sorry for yourself. I think I did both the first two years. Last year I decided I wasn't going to let this game affect my life. Just made a decision to work as hard as I can. Whether or not this is for me, I'll find out. But I worked as hard as I could, and I'll never second-guess myself. I'm either strong mentally or extremely hardheaded. I'm just stubborn like that. There's nothing more that I want than to be out here."
