Football is back. Not all the way back, but close enough. The Houston Texans kicked off training camp on Sunday, July 31 and will continue with camp and the preseason in August, leading up to their 2016 regular-season opener against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, September 11.

With the Houston Astros in the thick of the playoff race and the Houston Dynamo hosting some of Major League Soccer’s top talent, August brings a welcome end to the slow summer months of Houston sports.
