HBO sends a crew to document the actions of an NFL training camp until the start of the NFL season. Teams such as the Atlanta Falcons, Miami Dolphins, and Cincinnati Bengals all have recently been the site of the taping in seasons past. This is the first time the Texans will be featured.
Some names to watch as the series progress will included Defensive Ends Jadeveon Clowney and J.J. Watt. Watt is coming off a season where he won Defensive Player of the Year for the 2nd time in his career, and Clowney is trying to be healthy for the season after undergoing knee surgery that cost him his rookie year. The real drama will come in as the roster is cut down week by week. The start of the football season beings with the filming of Hard Knocks.
