Deshaun Watson threw a couple nice long passes on Tuesday, including one to Wendall Williams on a deep route. Watson threw on the run for one of his best plays of the day.

Play of the practice: The Texans held a joint practice with the Patriots on Tuesday, and J.J. Watt looked like his old self. At least twice, Watt beat his man up to get to Tom Brady, for what would have been a sack in a game.

DeAndre Hopkins did not practice again on Tuesday. He has not practiced since last Monday, though he did play in the Texans' preseason opener on Wednesday. On Monday, Bill O'Brien said Hopkins is "doing fine." "We've got him on a little bit of a pitch count, so to speak," O'Brien said.

The Texans announce they have signed WR Germone Hopper and waived (injured) WR DeAndrew White. Houston signed White on Aug. 1, and he looked like he was competing for a roster spot before he injured his groin at practice.

Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson took first-team reps at practice today, but Bill O'Brien said that's more a product of how his reps lined up.

The Texans have their fourth and final day off of the West Virginia portion of their training camp today. There are only three more practices at The Greenbrier, and the Patriots will join them on Tuesday and Wednesday for joint practices.

Bill O'Brien said Deshaun Watson "seems to get better at something every day." "[He's] got a good attitude, a good demeanor," O'Brien said. "He's doing a really good job."

The Texans' defense had a great day of practice -- so good that Bill O'Brien made the offense run a lap around the field: "Offensively, we didn't have a good day today, so we have to pick it back up on Monday. Defense came out flying, so we have to pick it up offensively. We've had a good camp. We've had a good camp offensively, but today wasn't one of our better days."

DeAndre Hopkins did not practice today. Bill O'Brien said it was just a day off for the wide receiver.

Texans receiver Will Fuller (broken collarbone) was at practice today, watching from one of the end zones.

Bill O'Brien praised Deshaun Watson's consistency during training camp: "I really have seen the same guy every single day since he's been here. He's got a great demeanor. He's got a great way about him. I just see the same guy every day. I don't see a different guy. I think that's what's one of the things that is a good, positive trait that he has."

The Texans announced they have signed wide receiver Bruce Ellington. The Texans are in need of depth at wide receiver after Will Fuller broke his collarbone last week.
