Texans | Coach supportive of Jadeveon Clowney

Tue, 02 Dec 2014 03:46:13 -0800

Despite outside criticism of his frequent injuries, Houston Texans OLB Jadeveon Clowney has the strong backing of head coach Bill O'Brien, who said Clowney has simply been unlucky with his knee problems. "This guy has worked extremely hard to recover from injuries," O'Brien said. "And I want to be real clear about this with him, as it relates to us here to the Houston Texans. We think very highly of him. We know he's going to be a really good player... He's had a sports hernia, he's had a concussion and now he's dealing with a knee injury. Those things are not easy in your rookie year."

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins frustrated

Thu, 29 May 2014 08:01:21 -0700

Houston Texas WR DeAndre Hopkins has admitted that he's struggling to pick up the new offense under head coach Bill O'Brien as well as connect with the new group of quarterbacks.

Fantasy Tip: The second-year snare has all the tools to take a step forward but has a situation similar to a rookie's. He's a fine speculation as a low-end WR3 in fantasy drafts, but it may take a bit for him to start going in the 2014 season.
