Under new coach DeMeco Ryans, the Texans plan to add some extra competition to their training camp practice sessions.
The Texans plan to have joint training camp practices with the New Orleans Saints in New Orleans and with the Miami Dolphins in Houston, according to league sources.
The Texans previously had joint training camp practices under former coach and general manager Bill O’Brien, including with the New England Patriots, San Francisco 49ers, Saints and Detroit Lions.
Now, Ryans is reviving the old tradition.

The Texans removed veteran defensive tackle Taylor Stallworth from injured reserve with an injury settlement.
Stallworth is close to recovering from a hamstring injury, according to a league source.
“It has been incorrectly reported that my client Taylor Stallworth has been put on season-ending IR with the Houston Texans,” agent Brett Tessler previously wrote on social media. “We will be doing an injury settlement on a short-term injury which would allow him to return there in the coming months or sign elsewhere when ready.”
Stallworth has also played for the New Orleans Saints, Indianapolis Colts and Kansas City Chiefs after going undrafted out of South Carolina.
He has 57 career tackles, 4 1/2 sacks, two fumble recoveries and 13 quarterback hits.
