Following are quotes from the Texans after the team's 27-20 win over the St. Louis Rams at the Edward Jones Dome in their second preseason game.
**Guard Steve McKinney
(on not playing due to injury) **"I wish I could be out there tonight, but I'd rather wait until I am fully healed and I can come back and be effective out there."
**Defensive end Mario Williams
(on his performance in the first half) **"It felt good to be able to make some plays. I felt more comfortable moving around. I think I did a better job in this game, at least for a preseason game, but I've still got a long way to go."
**Quarterback David Carr
(on the offense's performance) **"We missed on a couple of plays, but we made some good ones, too. I have to do a better job of getting the ball out of my hand quicker so we don't leave plays out on the field. We did some good things, but we've still got a lot of work to do."
**Running back Wali Lundy
(on his play) **"It's gone good. I have to stay focused and keep my head in the game. Some plays didn't go our way and some plays did, but we have to keep playing and keep working hard."
**Cornerback Phillip Buchanon
(on his feelings at halftime) **"Things were looking real good. I got a lot of good blocking, were just trying to work as a team. That's all."
