FOXSports.com reports Houston Texans rookie LB DeMeco Ryans is currently playing behind LB Morlon Greenwood at outside linebacker and LB Wali Rainer in the middle. He is making big strides at both positions, however, and will be pushing for the starting jobs in training camp. "We think he has a bright, bright future," defensive coordinator Richard Smith said. "And he's a young person that we feel can come in here and compete for a starting position on this team. But he's got to earn that spot. And that's what we're trying to get accomplished right now. We're trying to develop him into a starter. He brings youth, speed, and athletic ability to the position."

Fri, 09 Jun 2006 07:40:50 -0700

Megan Manfull, of the Houston Chronicle, reports Houston Texans LB DeMeco Ryans is learning nearly every linebacker position with the team.

Head coach Gary Kubiak said, "He's been able to handle a lot of things on the defensive side. He's a fine football player; we know that. But his intelligence is going to help him play very quickly." Ryans is currently sitting behind LB Morlon Greenwood at outside linebacker and LB Wali Rainer at middle linebacker.
