Friday notebook: Texans finish preparations, donate bikes

Posted Dec 17, 2010

After making their final preparations for the Tennessee Titans on Friday, the Texans donated new bicycles to 230 local children.


The Texans donated 230 new bicycles to children from the Boys & Girls Club and other local organizations on Friday. Players mingled with the giddy youngsters for several minutes after practice.

The bikes were purchased from Academy Sports Outdoors with money that players and coaches accrued from fines throughout the season. It’s been an annual Christmas tradition since Gary Kubiak became Texans coach in 2006.

“It’s pretty cool,” Kubiak said. “We’ve done it every year and it has gotten a little bigger each year. I appreciate the guys doing it. It’s important to them. They are the ones that want to do it, and I think it’s great for the kids.

“It starts off as fine money, but it really just ends up being donations. It’s just something that we get together and do every year. Coaches and players, they were all kids once. They probably remember their first bike, too.”   

Focused on Titans
Kubiak was asked what he thought about Texans chairman and CEO Bob McNair saying Wednesday that he believes the team is on the right track.

“I think it’s good for him to talk to our players,” Kubiak said. “They hear my voice all the time, so I appreciate him doing that. But when it’s all said and done, the bottom line is Bob wants us to beat Tennessee. That’s where my focus is.”

Busy week
It’s been a short and hectic week for the Texans. Not only did they have one less day to prepare because they played on Monday Night Football, they had to work in three new players after putting Mario Williams, Mike Brisiel and David Anderson on injured reserve.

“We got a new starting guard (Antoine Caldwell) this week,” Kubiak said. “We have a defensive end situation that we have to get worked out, and we’re suiting up a player that we just picked up (DeMario Pressley). From a receiver standpoint, we have an adjustment to make with David out. We had a lot of work to do coming off of probably our most physical game of the year. I thought that we were sharp and fresh today. We’ll be ready to go.”

Townsel’s chance?
Anderson’s injury means that rookie wide receiver Dorin Dickerson will play against the Titans. It also could provide an opportunity for receiver Derrick Townsel, who was called up from the practice squad on Wednesday.

“I’m excited,” said Townsel, a 5-9, 175-pound rookie who returned kicks in college at Murray State. “I’m just glad that they’re giving me an opportunity to possibly go out and show what I can do against another team. Been going against the ones on this team for a while, and I’m just happy they’re giving me the opportunity.”

Health check
Rookie tight end Garrett Graham was ruled out of Sunday’s game with a hamstring injury. Otherwise, the Texans are in good health heading into their game in Nashville.

No Texans players were listed as doubtful or questionable on the final injury report. Twelve were listed as probable: linebackers Xavier Adibi (hamstring) and Brian Cushing (knee/finger/neck), tight ends Owen Daniels (hamstring) and Joel Dreessen (hand), running back Arian Foster (hip), wide receiver Andre Johnson (ankle), cornerback Glover Quin (hand), kicker Neil Rackers (right hamstring), quarterback Matt Schaub (left arm), linebacker Darryl Sharpton (neck), wide receiver Kevin Walter (knee) and tackle Eric Winston (shoulder).
