Brownout: Rackers Wins Kicker Job

Neil Rackers, per John McClain’s Twitter, has won the kicking job for the Texans.

Brown was the last original Texan, and the team did all they could to help him win, but last night’s missed 56 yard field goal may have been the stake in the heart for his chances at the job. Brown had a pretty stellar Texans career, but this was the correct move by any empirical or psychological measure.

In other news, Adam Schefter has reported that the Texans are having released Buccaneers RB Derrick Ward in for a visit today. Jeremiah Johnson was hurt yesterday, and with Steve Slaton still recovering from a turf toe, the Texans suddenly have only two healthy running backs after entering training camp with five.
