“Sometimes if you put a preconceived date on it it’s not fair and I’ve been in them before. I just think they express themselves in how they express themselves,” Kelly said when asked about naming a starting QB. “Obviously you’d like to get it done sooner rather than later. But you don’t want to get it done sooner and make the wrong decision. I think how we train and what we do on the practice fields and obviously the opportunity to play in preseason games will give us a real good indication; we hope as we head into the regular season.”
It’s going to be interesting to watch this quarterback competition unfold to say the least.
Gase said Foster is “ready to go” after he “annihilated” his conditioning test.

DeAndre Hopkins is returning to the Houston Texans.
One day after choosing not to report to training camp, the star wideout is ending his brief holdout, a source close to the player told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. Hopkins on Sunday announced his change of heart via a statement provided to Rapoport:
“I, too, am disappointed that the Texans’ organization has elected not to enter into contract negotiations to secure my future as a Texan. I have expressed my sincere position regarding my contract status and I, too, with sound mind have expressed my stance to the Texans’ organization. My focus also is on the 2016 season and help my team reach our ultimate goal. Having said that I am returning to the Houston Texans to play for a Super Bowl in Houston, Texas. I will be holding a 12 noon Monday press conference at Reliant Stadium. I am excited about returning to the team and grind this camp.”
Hopkins didn’t waste any time returning to training camp. About an hour after releasing his statement, he was back in uniform, Rapoport reported. The team also indicated that they would work with Hopkins on a possible new contract if he ended his holdout, Rapoport added.
With two years left on his rookie contract, Hopkins is slated to make just $1 million in base salary this season. He’s obviously unhappy with his situation, but hoping that a team-first approach will help him land a new pact in time.
