Houston Texans linebacker Bryan Braman returned to practice on Wednesday after missing time due to a hamstring injury. He was forced to sit out of the Texans' season opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars last Sunday.
Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said Wednesday that Braman could be one of the league's best special teams players and Braman takes pride in it, via Sean Bielawski of CBSSports.com:
"It's kind of like a junkyard attitude," Braman told reporters of playing special teams. "The basic standpoint about it is not too many people want to play special teams. They all want to play defense or offense. They want to be starters. So, I kind of look at it as the job that nobody else wants, but I'm going to be the best at it."
In other Texans news, Arian Foster felt ill on Wednesday had to leave practice early, but it does not appear to be a major issue.
