Taiwan Jones Starts Against Lions

Houston Texans running back Taiwan Jones started Saturday's preseason win over the Detroit Lions. He rushed once for five yards. While Jones wasn't very involved offensively, head coach Bill O'Brien's decision to go with him as the starter with Lamar Miller and Duke Johnson out suggests that Jones may be in the lead for the third running back role in Houston. His ability to make an impact on special teams -- something O'Brien wants from the third and fourth back -- will be what gets him a spot if he earns one. Don't expect Jones to see much usage if Miller and Johnson are healthy.

Taiwan Jones Starts First Preseason Game

Houston Texans running back Taiwan Jones started the team's first preseason game, rushing for 28 yards on seven carries and bringing in his only target for 11 yards. The battle to be the third running back in Houston is wide open, and Jones getting the first crack at the starting lineup isn't a huge surprise, as reports out of camp have been positive. Most likely, Jones is part of a three-way battle with undrafted rookies Damarea Crockett and Karan Higdon to grab the final two spots at the position. Jones' ability to contribute on special teams should give him a good shot at making the team, though it would take injuries for him to find fantasy relevance.

Taiwan Jones Having Strong Camp

Early on in training camp, it looked like the Houston Texans were set to roll with Josh Ferguson as their third-down back, but veteran running back Taiwan Jones has come on strong lately in the battle for that spot. Jones has been practicing with Houston's starters at times and the veteran has plenty of experience playing on special teams, which head coach Bill O'Brien says is necessary to earn a backup running back spot on this team. Keep an eye on the Ferguson/Jones in preseason, as the winner could have some situational value in deeper leagues.
