Kubiak: Good Chance Jacoby Jones Sees Reps At Kick Returner


After today's practice, Coach Gary Kubiak said that WR/PR Jacoby Jones has a good chance to see reps as a kick returner this Monday. Whether it's all the reps or some is unknown, but there's now a chance the Texans could start a drive at the 20 following a kickoff.

Texans Work Out Nine Players...None of Them Are LBs


According to the National Football Post, the Texans are looking to add some LB help in place of the injured DeMeco Ryans. So, nine players worked out for the team today. The only hitch is that none of them were LBs. Nope, five running backs (Javarris Williams, Alphonso Smith, Clifton Smith, Chris Jennings and Louis Rankin), Two quarterbacks (Tom Brandstater and Jonathan Crompton) and lastly....wait for it...two tight ends (Rob Myers and Derek Schouman)! It would appear the team has lost all faith in Steve Slaton, so that explains the running backs. Kubiak keeps talking about how Matt Leinart is "pushing" Dan Orlovsky for the backup job, so the quarterbacks make some sense if Dan is about to get released. But more tight ends? Seriously?
