The Texans are prepared to head into preseason games with Blue as the lead running back and do not have plans to add another back, the Houston Chronicle reports. "Yeah, I think right now we're pretty satisfied with what we're looking at right now," Texans coach Bill O'Brien said. "I think there is a bit of a numbers issue maybe body-wise when you look at it, but we're not in a situation here where we just want to bring anybody in off the street just to have numbers."

2014

Although Blue showed promise as a runner in his four seasons at LSU, he ended up only starting seven games in his college career, never carried the ball more than 71 times in a season, and had his junior year cut short by a knee injury. Still, the Texans saw enough to select the well-built rusher in the sixth round of this year's draft, and he'll battle with Jonathan Grimes in training camp for the right to serve as the No. 2 behind to Arian Foster.
