Alfred Blue rushes for 40 yards in Week 2 win
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Texans rookie running back Alfred Blue enjoyed a productive performance on the ground in a convincing win over the Raiders in Week 2.

Blue worked behind Arian Foster and received the majority of his reps in the fourth quarter when the game was well in hand for the Texans. He took 11 handoffs for 40 yards on the ground, averaging 4.6 yards per attempt. He was not targeted in the passing game in a 30-14 victory.

The Texans will travel to New York for a Week 3 showdown against the Giants.

Alfred Blue scores touchdown vs. Falcons
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Texans rookie running back Alfred Blue gained 22 yards on six carries and scored a touchdown in Saturday's 32-7 preseason win over the Falcons.

Blue entered the game once the team reached the red zone on its second drive and rushed for 14 yards on three straight carries, finding the end zone on a one-yard plunge. That represented most of his feature work on the night, mixing in a few more touches in the first half before team took a look at its newest running back additions in the second half. Blue has done a good job of coming in and making a positive impression after getting drafted with the 181st pick in this year's draft.

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."

Alfred Blue to challenge Andre Brown
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Texans signed running back Andre Brown this offseason to be the backup to starter Arian Foster, but ESPN reports that rookie Alfred Blue could push Brown for the No. 2 job.

The report says "Brown has an edge on starting experience. Blue has an edge on youth and lack of mileage." Most likely, if Foster were to get hurt, the Texans would use a tandem of Brown and Blue to replace him.
