Houston Texans rock high school letterman jackets

Houston Texans nose tackle Shaun Cody had an idea. He thought it would be pretty cool for the team to rock letterman jackets like high school varsity football players do. So he recuited OLB Conner Barwin , and he worked with the equipment manager to make it happen.

Shaun Cody’s Time With The Texans Coming To An End?

Pro Football Weekly reports NT Shaun Cody is “unlikely to be with the Texans in 2013.” PFW notes that Earl Mitchell has played well enough with Cody out of the lineup that he could afford Houston the ability to move on without the veteran nose tackle. Cody, 29, will be a free agent at the end of the season, but it seems likely that the Texans will consider drafting a replacement...

Pats offensive balance a challenge for Texans

Stevan Ridley has emerged as a top running back in his second pro season. He's not the only Patriots rusher Texans coach Gary Kubiak has to worry about. The revived New England ground game, with Shane Vereen and Brandon Bolden as backups, has brought balance to an offense that relied more heavily on quarterback Tom Brady in recent years. Ridley, in his second pro season, is...
