Texans | Shepherd takes over as return man

Dale Robertson, of the Houston Chronicle, reports Houston Texans WR Edell Shepherd has become the new punt and kick returner with CB Phillip Buchanon (ankle) injuring his ankle against the Philadelphia Eagles. "You've got to give guys on your roster opportunities," head coach Gary Kubiak said. "We picked him up because we thought he could handle it. To throw him in (to the Indianapolis) environment, that's a lot to ask, but we're going to need players like him to step up if we're going to have a chance of winning"
