Texans' Alfred Blue: Carries twice against Colts
Blue rushed for 13 yards on two carries in Sunday's win over Indianapolis.
Blue has been far more efficient in limited looks, averaging 5.2 yards per carry thus far this season, 1.7 yards greater than his career average. The downside, of course, has been that he hasn't surrendered the starting role to just any back. Lamar Miller's three-down ability has him ranking second in the league in carries, with 25 or more touches in four of six games. With few opportunities left behind, Blue has yet to top six touches in a game this season.
