Jonathan Grimes leads team with 42 rushing yards vs. Falcons
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Texans running back Jonathan Grimes led his team in rushing Saturday, gaining 42 yards on nine carries and catching three passes for 25 yards in his team's 32-7 preseason win over the Falcons.

Grimes is the favorite to open the season as Arian Foster's direct backup, and though he started off slow Saturday, he broke off a 22-yard run in the second quarter that was Foster-esque for his balance and cutback ability. Grimes mixed in with rookie Alfred Blue throughout the first half, giving the team a good look at the presumed depth chart behind Foster this season.

Jonathan Grimes leads pack to back up Arian Foster
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Texans coach Bill O'Brien clarified the competition at backup running back. Jonathan Grimes is in the lead, and Andre Brown is barely in the discussion. As of now it's Grimes, Alfred Blue and Brown, in that order, behind Arian Foster.

"Grimes’ experience overall probably has him a little ahead of Alfred," O’Brien told the Houston Chronicle. "But Alfred’s doing a good job for a guy that just got here."

Asked about Brown, O'Brien said: "He’s battling out there. … He’s out there. He’s involved with special teams and things like that. But that’s a challenging position, it’s a competitive position."

Jonathan Grimes looks solid in big action
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Texans running back Jonathan Grimes thrived in his first extended action in Week 17, topping 100 all-purpose yards in a 16-10 loss to the Titans.

Grimes didn't have much success running the ball, finishing with just 50 yards despite 12 carries. He shined as a receiver, however, leading the team with six receptions for 76 yards. He added his first career touchdown on a 3-yard run in the first game.

Injuries pushed Grimes into action only recently, as he appeared in just the team's final two games.
