Season Preview: QB | RB | WR
Coach's Commentary: QB | RB | WR | TE
After missing eight games in 2009 with a season-ending knee injury and five games in 2010 with a hamstring injury, Daniels was fully healthy last season and started 15 regular-season games. He ranked sixth among AFC tight ends in yards and catches and second with 75.9 percent of his catches going for first downs.
“He looks good,” Texans coach Gary Kubiak said during OTAs (organized team activities (OTAs). “This is seven years; O.D.’s been with me from the start. I expect O.D. to have a big year, but we’re a balanced offense that spreads the ball. I don’t know who’s going to get it. Somebody’s going to get it, and believe me, he’ll get many chances. With that being said, I’m sure he’ll have a hell of a year.”
The Texans also have two undrafted rookie tight ends,
“We’ve normally had a physical tight end around here to go with O.D.,” Kubiak said. “We don’t have that presence right now. That’s something (general manager) Rick (Smith) and I are looking at.”
