Bill O'Brien also said right tackle Derek Newton (hamstring) could return to the practice field this week, and there is "a good chance" he could play in the first game. "I think Derek Newton's doing better," O'Brien said. "I think he's made a lot of progress. I think he'll be able to move around this week. Whether we play him against Dallas, that's to be determined. But I do think he can do some things out on the practice field this week."

Richard Sherman on Colin Kaepernick: "There is some depth and some truth into what he was doing. I think he could have picked a better platform and a better way to do it. But every day, they say athletes are so robotic and do everything by the book. And then when somebody takes a stand like that, he gets his head chopped off."

Bill O'Brien said he "could definitely see" J.J. Watt play in the Texans' season opener against the Bears. "He's made a lot of improvement in the last couple of weeks," O'Brien said. "He's really on the right track and we feel good about where he is right now."
