Former Texan Winston to donate brain by Matt Young, Houston Chronicle
"“I love the game of football and all that it has done for me and my family, but when I look back years from now, it is important that other players appreciate the positions we are taking to make things better for them,”Winston said in an interview with the Concussion Legacy Foundation. “Hopefully I’ll be using my brain for a lot longer – I’m hoping I get another 60 years out of it. But if contributing to this research can just help move the needle some, then I will leave the game better than I found it. I really believe in that.”"
Weeks a Steady Presence During Changing Times by Dougherty
"Jon Weeks was selected to the Pro Bowl after six steady seasons on the job as long snapper. He entered the NFL the same year as fellow Pro Bowl snapper Morgan Cox from the Ravens. Those two were in Hawaii this week, and Cox said the Texans are fortunate to have Weeks.“He’s been awesome, and great for that operation,” Cox said. “He’s had a couple guys come in and out, but he’s been steady. You guys got a great guy, and good snapper too.”"
