There's a long running argument, or joke depending on how you view it, that kickers in the NFL aren't actually football players. This week, the Texans' punter seemed to fall in line with that belief.
According to James Palmer of Comcast Sportsnet, Texans punter, Donnie Jones, shrugged off an injury he sustained in Houston's Monday night loss to the Patriots, saying, "I told those guys, I said, ‘Look, you guys are NFL football players, I’m not.’ So when I get a little bruise or something, it is what it is. I know my role. But it’s all in good fun."
Jones continued, "Yeah, I mean I’m not an actual NFL ‘football’ player. I mean, come on. We know our roles. I had the same type thing in 2008. I had to push DeSean Jackson out of bounds. Somehow I chased him down, don’t know how I did it, and I fell and my knee blew up. Every now and then you get one. We’re punters and kickers. We’re a different breed.
While the statement itself, being made by an NFL pu...

HOUSTON -- Ask any high school coach. You play how you look. So when the Houston Texans showed up Monday night in letter jackets, looking like a high school team, well, they got crushed by the Patriots.
"We're not talking about letter jackets anymore," defensive tackle Shaun Cody said. "That was completely Connor Barwin's idea."
Cody was (sort of) joking...
Texans HC Gary Kubiak noted that RB Ben Tate has almost regained the back-up running back position, according to the team’s Twitter account.
Kubiak cites an increased level of conditioning on Tate’s part as the reason why he’s comfortable putting the rusher back into the second spot on the depth chart. Tate would take Justin Forsett‘s spot.
The Texan has experience backing...
