Houston Texans: Lamar Miller rushing his way to franchise records in 2019
By Jair Lopez
Houston Texans Pro Bowl running back Lamar Miller could catapult himself to second in franchise history in all-time rushing yards.
Running back Lamar Miller will be closing on in the all-time rushing leaders in Houston Texans’ franchise history. Currently sitting at third overall with 2,934 rushing yards, Miller is 262 yards of being in second place and unseating Domanick Williams who was the Texans running back from 2003 to 2005.
Miller has been a successful signing since he was added to the Texans roster in the 2016 free agency period. Freshly turning 28 years of age in April, Miller is in the prime in his career with the Texans. Having some big shoes to fill after he was brought in to replace the Texans’ all-time rushing leader in Arian Foster, Miller has done a good job in making his own mark on the Texans rushing game.
A smaller running back at 5’10, Miller has the speed and elusiveness to beat defenders with his speed and the ability to contribute in the passing game with good catches out of the backfield. A dual threat as a runner and a receiver, Miller has 92 receptions for 678 receiving yards and averaging 7.4 yards per reception.
Miller has 18 touchdowns combined through his first three seasons with the Texans. His 13 rushing touchdowns have him placed third in franchise history and he is only 11 touchdowns shy from being second in Texans’ history.
Entering his fourth season with the Texans, and his third season working with Deshaun Watson could create the perfect opportunity for Miller to build on the successful year that earned him his first trip to the Pro Bowl.
