Texans | Young running backs see opportunity

Megan Manfull and John McClain, of the Houston Chronicle, report Houston Texans RBs Chris Taylor and rookie Steve Slaton impressed head coach Gary Kubiak Friday, Aug. 22. Taylor started for the team against the Dallas Cowboys and carried the ball 11 times for 47 yards. Slaton, who also got work with the first-string offense, chipped in 44 yards on 10 carries. "I thought both of them ran well," Kubiak said. "That's the best they've looked in preseason. This was a big opportunity for Chris, and he did a good job."
