HOUSTON, TX - The Texans kicked off their season with day one of Training Camp on Saturday.  Players hit the field in front of thousands of fans.

Practicing for the first time since June's OTA's, players showed a bit of rust, but head coach Bill O'Brien expects that to change.

"I think we'll be a lot better," O'Brien said. "The guys are working hard to get better at that, but we need to keep going in that direction."

One of the main things to watch this camp is the quarterback battle between Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett.

"I'm not looking at it like I'm competing against him," Mallett said. "Obviously that's the situation, but for me it's about making myself better to help the team win."

"Today is the first day, you have got to get better," Hoyer said. "There were some good things and some bad, but we are just hoping that we improve day to day.'

One practice is in the books, and here's the good news, the season is just beginning!
