Knowledge of the system has aided in Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz's ability to play faster. Also helping is improved health, as Fiedorowicz revealed Monday that he'd gone through arthroscopic knee surgery in January. The tight end said his knee "feels great" and is "strong".
HC Bill O'Brien wants "to see very consistent play" from the tight end, and said a strength of Fiedorowicz's is his blocking.
"He’s a very good blocking tight end and I think he can help us in the passing game," O'Brien said. "I think he can run the different routes that we need the tight ends to run."
