Texans | Stevens Target Of Criticism, Could Be Benched

Thu, 16 Oct 2003 19:24:51 -0700

Joseph Duarte, of the Houston Chronicle, reports Houston Texans FS Matt Stevens has started 21 games for the Texans the past two seasons, but that run appears ready to come to an end. Stevens has been the target of criticism the past two seasons for spotty coverage, and the Texans are itching to make changes in the secondary after giving up 421 passing yards to the Titans. Stevens appears to be the most logical target. He was released in the offseason for salary-cap reasons and later re-signed for a friendlier cap number. Meanwhile, the Texans struck out in their courtship for nearly every available free-agent free safety on the market and were forced to hand the starting job back to Stevens.

Texans | Stevens Day-To-Day

Thu, 21 Aug 2003 12:31:16 -0700

The Houston Chronicle reports Houston Texans FS Matt Stevens (knee) had a vigorous workout Tuesday, Aug. 19, but his status remains day-to-day heading into the Saturday, Aug. 23 pre-season game against the San Diego Chargers. "I don't want to rush anything," said Stevens, whose injured right knee forced him to sit out against the Dallas Cowboys on Friday, Aug. 15. "I don't want to sit out a couple of games in the regular season. I'd rather sit out in the pre-season. In the long run, it'd be better to sit back and wait." Stevens plans to take things slow over the next couple of days to see how the knee responds. If he plays Saturday, it will only be for a series or two.
