“I think I played well,” Swearinger said. “I had two PBU’s (pass break ups), so I think I did very well in coverage, There’s probably some things I know I could work on, but for the most part I think I did well.”
Head coach Gary Kubiak was pleased with Swearinger’s performance on special teams but would reserve judgment on defense until after watching the game film.
“I have to go back and look,” Kubiak said. “I can’t just sit here and talk about it. It looks like he was a little more solid in his coverage. He had some issues, some assignment issues. Looked like he did a little better for (Special Teams Coordinateor) Joe (Marciano) on special teams.”
In the second quarter, Swearinger placed a hit on tight end Dustin Keller that knocked him out of the game. Keller was carted off the field with a knee injury and did not return.
The Texans suffered injuries of their own as
“We got banged up at safety tonight,” Kubiak said. “Keo’s got a quad contusion, Eddie’s got a knee, he banged his knee pretty good that we’re looking at. So we got really short at safety, real quick tonight with Ed out, so we had to struggle to get through.”
With the injuries to Keo and Pleasant, Kubiak may shuffle the roster and move cornerback
“Something we have talked about,” Kubiak said. “That’s where he ended up and we’ll see. B-Money is a good football player. He’s smart. I think he could probably do anything we ask him to do. He’s gotten a lot better as a player.”'
