The Texans could see some different faces this week on special teams. Keshawn Martin is the regular kick returner but has been struggling due to a shoulder injury he suffered in Week 5 at San Franscisco.
“I’m going to go look at how he practiced today," head coach Gary Kubiak said Friday. "We actually practiced special teams at the end of practice today. I’m going to go watch how he handled things, but Shiloh (Keo’s) capable of doing that, DJ (Dennis Johnson) is capable, Deji (Karim) is capable of doing that. So we have a few more guys.”
The Texans added Johnson and Karim to the 53-man active roster this week to add depth at running back and to help on special teams, a role they filled during preseason.
