Gary Kubiak not worried about Arian Foster's workload
Houston Texans running back Arian Foster is on pace for nearly 400 carries this season. The team is in position for a No. 1 seed in the AFC and hopes to be playing well into January.
You would think the Texans would ease up on Foster heading into a short week with a Thanksgiving game against the Detroit Lions on tap. Foster has 65 touches in the past two weeks. But Texans coach Gary Kubiak doesn't sound concerned.
"You're right; he's had a lot of carries," Kubiak said Tuesday, via the Houston Chronicle. "He's our back, so he's going to carry it. He's having a great year, and he's holding up very well.
"He seems to get better as we go. We'll keep going, and hopefully, he stays good and healthy."
Running backs that go over 375 carries often struggle with injuries the following season. But Kubiak is more worried about this year. Foster's backup Ben Tate is hurt.

"These Thanksgiving games, you grew up watching them," Foster said this week. "You watched Barry Sanders. You watched Brett Favre. This is what really got you into the game."
Foster has rushed for at least 100 yards in his last five road games and has averaged more than 100 rushing yards in nine nationally televised games. We'd bet on another big game -- and big workload -- against the Lions.

Striking similarities between Texans OLBs Reed, Mercilus
If the Texans’ need for a highly drafted outside linebacker picking up the slack for an injured starter sounds familiar, well, that’s because it is.
First-rounder Whitney Mercilus has the task of replacing SLB Brooks Reed, who filled in for former Texan Mario Williams in 2011 when Williams was lost for the season with a torn pectoral muscle in Week Five.
Fortunately, for the Texans, Reed went down much later, suffering a groin injury in Week 12, and the hope is that he will return to contribute at some point this season ― or in the postseason.
Like Reed a year ago, when he outplayed Williams in the preseason and had fans wondering how defensive coordinator Wade Phillips would find ways to get him on the field, Mercilus came on like gangbusters in his first preseason action, leading Houston in sacks and outplaying Reed and fellow outside ‘backer Connor Barwin. In fact, Mercilus has more sacks than both Reed and Barwin this season ― despite not starting a game yet ― and stands a strong chance of finishing second on the club in sacks.
The plan is for Mercilus to take Barwin’s position on the weak side on run downs, with Barwin moving across the field to the strong side, where he will have greater coverage responsibilities. Look for Barwin to move back to the right side of the defense on passing downs, though as one source wondered aloud, “perhaps it makes even more sense to keep Mercilus on the weak side, given he’s gotten home with the most consistency?”

Could a strong showing down the stretch make Barwin, a free agent after the season who has not matched his ’11 production, expendable, much like Williams was a season ago given Reed’s fast ascension? The possibility shouldn’t be ruled out, we hear.
In the more immediate future, it will be up to Mercilus ― as well as second-year undrafted player Bryan Braman, who we hear will get around 10-15 snaps rushing the passer to keep the starters fresh ― to wreak consistent havoc on QBs, which has been an issue for everyone not named J.J. Watt.

As for special-teams ace Braman, who flashed as a rusher each of the past two preseasons, he is extremely hungry and ready to make the most of his opportunity, we hear.
“He has really straightened up since he got here,” the source said about Braman, who was kicked out of West Texas A&M as a senior and spent time working as a bouncer before making the Texans’ final 53-man roster in 2011. “Everybody loves him, and he just feels so fortunate to be where he is.”
