Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney (knee) walking without a limp
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Texans linebacker Jadeveon Clowney said his rehab from microfracture surgery in his knee is going well, according to the Houston Chronicle. Clowney, who is four months removed from the procedure, was spotted walking without a limp during a promotional event on Saturday.

"It's going good. I'm taking it one day at a time, having some fun hanging out with fans," said Clowney, who made his first public comments since Thanksgiving.

Clowney wouldn't comment on his status for training camp.

"I'm not going to speak on that, but I'm making progress, and I'm very encouraged," Clowney said. "I'm working hard, but we're not going to rush it."

Bill O'Brien: 'Sky's the limit' for WR DeAndre Hopkins
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

With Andre Johnson now in Indy, DeAndre Hopkins enters the 2015 season as the Texans' undisputed No. 1 receiver.

“He had a really good year last year and the sky’s the limit with Hop (Hopkins)," coach Bill O'Brien told NFL Network. "He’s an excellent young player who works extremely hard and we’re looking forward to putting together our whole receiving corps and he should be the leader of that.”

Hopkins led Houston with 1,210 receiving yards and six receiving touchdowns last year. He has 128 catches for 2,012 yards and eight scores in his two NFL seasons.

Bill O'Brien rips Texans' Louis Nix for work ethic, durability
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Texans coach Bill O'Brien delivered a message to defensive tackle Louis Nix through the media at the NFL Owners Meetings on Tuesday. 

After praising rookies Jadeveon Clowney and Xavier Su'a-Filo for the work ethic they've shown while rehabbing from injuries, O'Brien was asked about Nix's offseason rehab work. 

"I have not seen Louis Nix," O'Brien said, per ESPN. "I don't know. He’s working out somewhere in Florida I guess. Haven’t seen him."

O'Brien added a caveat, saying, "That’s their prerogative, so don’t read anything into that. When they show back up here for the offseason program, especially the younger players, the younger players need to be ready to roll. So hopefully he’s ready to go."

When asked what changes he'd like to see in Nix, O'Brien landed another shot. ""I would say the ability to make it through a practice," O'Brien said. "That would be the biggest thing I need to see."
