When he balked at the presumption by some that he was out of the Houston Texans quarterback battle, Ryan Mallett hadn't yet gotten his day.

It came instead on Sunday, when Mallett spent most of his day with the first team, just as Brian Hoyer had done the day before. In an early first-team offense vs. first-team defense session, Mallett completed six of nine throws.

The day's crowd pleaser came on a deep throw from Mallett to DeAndre Hopkins -- a signature Hopkins one-handed touchdown catch. The throw was nice and the catch was, too. In fact Mallett had nice touch on several of his throws.
