The Houston Texans aren’t practicing with 10 days to go until their season opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, Sept. 12 at NRG Stadium.

According to Aaron Wilson of Sports Talk 790, the team is holding a barbecue, a team-bonding event designed to strengthen the cohesion among the coaches and players.

The Texans face an uphill climb as they seek to win games in the NFL with a run-heavy offense backed by an opportunistic defense. Rookie coach David Culley certainly will have his own challenges as he becomes the top boss on the sideline for the first time in his career — ever, at any level.

“I like where we are from the standpoint of I like our effort and with what we have been trying to get done,” Culley told reporters on Aug. 31.

No word if quarterback Deshaun Watson is at the barbecue.
