HOUSTON, TX - Texans Training Camp is always a hot media commodity with plenty of cameras, but this year, there's a few videographers right in the huddle!

HBO Sports and NFL Films crews have been recording video for the upcoming "Hard Knocks" show which debuts on August 11.

So far, head coach Bill O'Brien hasn't had any issues with the camera crews.

"It's not a distraction at all. We're used to the cameras already," O'Brien said. "I think anytime you have a mic on or a camera in your face, that's not always easy in the beginning, but you certainly get used to it after a while."

This is the tenth season of the show.  Only four of the preview nine teams featured made the playoffs the season they were filmed.

"You hear about that jinx with 'Hard Knocks,' but I think it's different this year, because the Texans are a first class organization," Texans fan Robert Ramirez said.

Jinx or not, the cameras will continue rolling this training camp.  However, the "set" will different later this week as the Texans will hold three practices with Washington in Virginia.
