Bill O'Brien said J.J. Watt "is in great shape" and has had a good offseason. "He's a very difficult guy to go against when you're in full pads so imagine what it's like when you're not in pads," O'Brien said. "To be honest with you ... sometimes you have to get J.J. out of the practice just so you can complete a pass."

The Texans' mandatory minicamp started Tuesday without left tackle Duane Brown, who can now be fined for missing practice. He also sat out the team's voluntary OTAs. Head coach Bill O'Brien said he doesn't "have much to say" about Brown's absence, but the team would of course "love to have him here."
