Big news out of Houston: Slaton out?
Breaking news from the Houston Chronicle suggests that Steve Slaton will likely be held out of Sunday's game against the Jags due to numbness in his arm resulting from a shoulder injury.
That means a big upgrade for Chris Brown (pictured), who's been splitting carries with Slaton over the past couple of weeks. I suppose Ryan Moats will get some additional action as well, but the real beneficiary should be Brown.
If you need RB help this week -- especially if you were planning to roll with Slaton -- Brown's a decent start. The Jags are playing the run well, however; so don't expect a huge day. But 100 total yards and a TD are not out of the question.
