The Houston Texans apparently want to ban reporters from practice so badly that they informed media covering the team that they would be ending training camp weeks early. The NFL stepped in and blocked the ridiculous move.
The Texans told reporters they would be ending training camp on Thursday, two days before their preseason opener. The move was an attempt to switch into regular-season mode so they could ban reporters from covering practices. The NFL recognized it as a way to circumvent league rules and shot down the attempted change.
League rules say that daily practices must be open to the media through August 26, but teams can limit access of local media members during regular season practices. The bumbling Nick Caserio-Jack Easterby regime clearly thought it was going to outsmart everyone and instead the team's decision-makers got exposed for being idiots.
