Training camp is over and the Texans third preseason game, at home against the New Orleans Saints, will actually be on a Sunday.
This week the Texans are taking more of a regular season-like schedule with their practices.
Yesterday was the Texans off day and it was filled with both the news and discussion of Texans defensive end Antonio Smith's suspension and fine for an on-field altercation with Dolphins guard Richie Incognito.
