  • Texans' Tremon Smith: Handles return duties Saturday

    Smith returned one punt for 15 yards, one kickoff for 25 yards and one interception for 12 yards in Saturday's 17-13 preseason win over New Orleans. Smith's first-quarter pick set up the Texans' first score, and his punt return gave the offense good field position to attempt a field goal at the end of the half. His primary role is as a returner, and Smith will provide depth at cornerback, something head coach Lovie Smith reinforced following the game. "The more things you do, the better your chances," Smith said. "And Tremon is our returner. We know what he can do in that role. But when you say the more things you can do - to be able to do that and also play good ball at the cornerback position in a backup role is big for us." Smith also had one tackle on defense and another on special teams.

  • Texans' Tremon Smith: Gets turn at running back

    Smith did not have a kick return and had one carry as a running back for seven yards in Sunday's 41-29 win over the Chargers. Smith is a cornerback by trade as well as a kick returner, but he successfully lobbied Houston's coaches to try him at running back Sunday, per Aaron Wilson of 790 AM SportsTalk. His one carry was a significant one, a red zone touch that preceded four straight handoffs to Rex Burkhead, who eventually scored a touchdown. "We knew we were going to run some outside stuff on this team and we knew speed was important," Texans coach David Culley said. "Tremon runs very well and he's been asking for that anyway. So, we use him in that situation and obviously he helped us today." The Chargers wisely avoided kicking to Smith, who scored a touchdown last week on a kickoff return, and booted five kickoffs for touchbacks. The one kick in play was a pooch kick that landed nowhere near Smith. Burkhead is the established No. 1 running at this stage of the season, but Houston has just one back, Scottie Phillips (ankle), under contract next season. That means Smith could get work on offense over the final two games with an eye toward some type of role there next season.

    The Packers promoted Smith to the 53-man roster Tuesday, Rob Demovsky of reports. The Packers tried out Chandon Sullivan as a kick returner in this past Sunday's win over the Chiefs, but they apparently weren't thrilled about his production and will retry Smith.
