Houston Texans Morning Huddle–McKinney Making Strides
By Josh McSwain
Here are your daily Houston Texans stories for Monday:
McKinney better prepared in his second year by Aaron Wilson, Houston Chronicle
"He was thinking less and reacting more by the end of last season, relying again on the aggressiveness and instincts that made him a consensus All-American at Mississippi State. During a pivotal victory over Indianapolis last December that helped the Texans win the AFC South Division title, McKinney had seven tackles, his lone sack of the season and two tackles for losses. He helped limit the Colts to 50 rushing yards as veteran runner Frank Gore was stonewalled and gained only 44."
This is great to hear. Benardrick McKinney is a big, physical linebacker who can continue the tradition of linebackers from the SEC doing great things in the NFL.
Texans offense without excuse anymore by Patrick Starr, State of the Texans
"Houston Texans OTAs start on Monday so we look at the early storylines heading in. The team has high expectations and, although they are not trying to win games when OTAs start, they are building the foundation for their new-look team.Entering their third year under head coach, Bill O’Brien, the Texans have been hovering around the step-above-middle-of-the-pack level in the NFL, with the offense being the real issue. A new season brings new hope, and now that the Texans have retooled their offense, a new vision is taking shape."
