Backup Houston Texans offensive lineman Derek Newton was slow getting up during a drill in Wednesday's practice, but when he heard about Duane Brown was taken off the field due to an injury he knew at that point he needed to prove himself:
"When I turned around, I saw (Brown) getting up slowly off the ground, and I was like, ‘Man,' " Newton said. "And when he came over, they were like, ‘He could possibly have a high ankle sprain.' I was like, ‘It's time to step up. I've got to get right.' "
