The Texans’ running game is so bad they are interested in signing former Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson.
The Texans, who are 5-4 and averaging only 90.8 yards rushing, are one of several teams showing interest in Johnson, who was placed on waivers Monday.
"We’re going to do our homework on him just like we did our homework on Edgerrin James last week," coach Gary Kubiak said. "Obviously, I think when a name like that (Johnson) comes on the free-agent market like today, we’ll take a look at him just like any other player.
"He’s been a good player in this league, and I’m sure he’ll get a lot of interest from a lot of people."
