There is a way for offensive lineman Kendall Lamm to help the Houston Texans going forward.

Offensive lineman Kendall Lamm quickly lost his starting job for the Houston Texans in week one after struggling at left tackle.

Since then, we’ve seen Lamm help out along the offensive line, but not really have a definitive role.

With the Texans down to two tight ends this past Sunday with Ryan Griffin now on injured reserve with a concussion, Lamm ended up helping Houston as a third blocking tight end. He actually played 10 snaps against the Arizona Cardinals.

With Lamm only being 25 years-old and this being his third year in the NFL, there is still a chance that he could develop into a starting offensive lineman. So the experience that he’s getting as a third tight end could prove to be beneficial to both him and the Texans.

Former Texans’ tight end found a new home

The Texans had brought in Zach Conque as an undrafted rookie free agent this past summer, but they ended up releasing him. Now it looks like he’ll be getting a chance with the New York Jets.

Conque actually played quarterback in college at Stephen F. Austin and made the switch to tight end in order to pursue his dream of playing in the NFL.
