Texans LB Darryl Sharpton Back At Practice; RB Arian Foster, DT J.J. Watt Sidelined
Texans running back Arian Foster has been on the Physically Unable to Perform list since the start of camp because of a right calf strain. It was expected he would practice on Sunday, but coach Gary Kubiak said Foster was held out due to a sore back.
Linebacker Darryl Sharpton (groin) practiced for the first time. He is listed as having a non-football injury but said he suffered the injury while training.
“Any time you’re on the football field it’s a blessing,” Sharpton said. “I think I’m a pretty good competitor. I love fighting through the heat and getting on these pads, smashing and banging. I love playing football. I love being back out here.”
While Sharpton practiced fully, reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt spent time on the back field working out alone because of soreness in his previously injured left elbow.
“I wanted to be smart with it,” Watt said. “I put it through a lot of work in the last week without (the brace). It just got real sore. I worked it a lot, and I worked it really hard.”
