HOUSTON, TX - The opening scene of Tuesday's "Hard Knocks" showed a passionate speech from J.J. Watt to his teammates.  Watt dropped a few "f-bombs" while telling his fellow Texans they had to be gentleman off the field, but play with a mean streak on it.

"You have to be good off the field," Watt explained at a Wednesday press conference. "You have to live your life the right way. But on the field, you can't be successful in this game if you don't have the mindset that you're the baddest dude out there."

Watt could get some help in making the Texans one of the best defenses in the league this season as Jadeveon Clowney remains on schedule to play in the regular season opener.

Clowney has been practicing for the last week as he comes back from a knee injury he suffered last season.

"I'm out there now just worried about playing football," Clowney said. "I don't worry about my knee. I think it's doing well."

Clowney says the Texans coaches and medical staff have him on a schedule to prepare him to play at the start of the season.
