On Sunday against the Bears, RB Lamar Miller rushed for 106 yards on 28 carries. The 28 attempts were the most he’d had in his career; he’d only eclipsed 20 carries two times.
But the heavy workload likely will become the norm for Miller this year, who also had four catches for 11 yards.
“Just coming here, an organization that’s a winning organization and just getting the opportunity to show my skill set and my ability, it feels good so far,” Miller said.
Though it has only been one game, the Texans used Miller in Week 1 the same way they used running back Arian Foster in the past. Coach Bill O’Brien said he sees the importance of continuing to run the ball,which means nothing but good news for Miller owners.
