RB. <p>Kenny Hilliard had a shot to insert himself into the running back discussion for the Texans in the midst of starter Foster’s injury. Instead Hilliard struggled when he was on the field early and was stuffed twice in a row on goal line runs in the first quarter.</p> <p>That is an awful sign for or a guy who was getting the reputation for being tough to bring down during camp. The seventh round selection finished with a 3.0 yard per carry average, which was aided by a 12 yard rush late in the game. The inability to get any push in the goal line however will be hard to overcome.</p>. Game Stats. 13 rushes 39 yards. KENNY HILLIARD
