Houston Texans Transcripts (1/4): Bill O'Brien, Brian Cushing, DeAndre Hopkins and more



Opening statement:

“Okay, like I said yesterday, just proud of this team, faced some adversity and dedicated themselves to having a good season and finished the regular season the way that we wanted to. So proud of that and quickly turn the page here. We’re on to a big challenge here. Kansas City is a very good football team, won 10 in a row, great coaching staff, great players, so it’s a big, big challenge for our football team, and we’ve already met today. We started working on these guys, and it’s going to take a lot of effort from a lot of different people to try to come out on the winning end. On the injury front, Duane Brown obviously suffered a bad quad injury. He’ll undergo surgery on Wednesday. Just a little bit about Duane, from the day I arrived here, Duane has been one of the leaders of this football team, one of the best left tackles in football, always out there at practice, always in early, staying late, meeting extra, working in the weight room, doing everything that you would want a leader to do. We’re going to miss him, next guy is going to have to step up, but I just want to tell you my feelings on Duane. Then Jadeveon Clowney, I’d say he’s day-to-day still. I think he feels pretty good today. We’ll see how it feels tomorrow and then Wednesday obviously. Nate Washington is in the same category, day-to-day. Then I would say that Cecil Shorts has a chance to play in the game on Saturday. With that, I’ll open it up to questions.”
