Charles James chips in on special teams, talks loss

Charles James, II returned to the Texans on Tuesday.

In Sunday's defeat at Miami, the cornerback came up with a pair of special teams tackles and an assist, and added another on defense.

His three tackles on special teams helped limit Jarvis Landry to returns of minus-8, four and two yard returns. Landry entered the game as the League's best in punt return average, with 19.1 per.

But James wasn't worried about individual accolades in the aftermath of the loss.

Texans fans showed up at Sun Life Stadium to support their team in Week 7.


"The plays are whatever," James said. "We didn't win the game and I hate losing. So that's what it is."

When he was asked specifically about his key stops in punt coverage, James was quick to focus on what he needed to do to improve.

"I got my ass kicked a few times at gunner," James said. "I gotta get better at that. Get downfield. For me, the expectation is to make every tackle."

James said even though the Texans were angry and disappointed about the loss, there is still team cohesion.

"We're always going to stick together," James said. "We're a team. I was actually with this team in training camp so I know the guys' heart. I know the guys' desire. I know we won't quit, and we definitely are going to go out and have a good week of preparation and get ready for Tennessee."

The Texans host the Titans next Sunday at NRG Stadium.
