A little slow, but still worth posting

Offensive Rookie of Week

 

Steve Slaton, RB, Texans

16 carries, 93 yards, 2 TD; 1 reception, 3 yards

 

In what is a star-studded group of running backs, Slaton is becoming the elite big-play back.  His two-touchdown performance against the Colts showed his ability to break a big play and to be a dangerous all-purpose weapon.  Slaton’s vision and footwork have stood out in the Texans’ zone-based running scheme.  He has shown good patience and trust in his blockers.  Slaton’s value as a blocker is starting to show also

 

Best of the Rest

2. Duane Brown, OT, Texans - Both of Slaton’s touchdown runs were to the left side, where Brown was doing a solid job all day against a weaker Colts defensive line.  His one blemish was allowing a sack to Dwight Freeney.

Both Steve Slaton and Duane Brown were recognized by New Era Scouting as top rookies.
