Rashod Bateman, who was often considered to lack that extra gear (in part because he played for Minnesota and not a CFP-type team) had a max speed of 21.48 MPH on his 75 yard TD.

This is the second-fastest ballcarrier speed of the year so far in the NFL. Looked smokin' fast burning the Dolphins with speed.

Ko Kieft just got targeted by Tom Brady in a NFL game.

Jeez the Bucs have a lot of injuries. They should have hung on to TJ. He would almost be starting by now.
Heard the HC say straight up he offered "nothing" on Special Teams that was why he was the odd man out to be let go. Too bad he didn't add waterboy duties to have something else to offer than just being a receiver...

I mean a role player who can’t play special teams is a pretty bad guy to have on a 53 man roster

Bet Tampa Bay and TB wish they had TJ now with Jones, Goodwin both injured and Evans suspended! They don’t have experienced receivers on their roster for TB now!

Surprised he isn’t on a practice squad. He was very solid every year. Definitely one of the better CBs in recent memory. Maybe not enough speed? Then if so, not enough size for a move to S? I don’t know? 🤷‍♂️

I'm guessing his injury history cost him some necessary speed and may be a red flag for teams.

Is Bateman not playing today or did he just not register any stats yet?

The game is proving that out. Brady looks pedestrian today.

De'Vondre Campbell with another complete game for the Pack, including breaking up Tom Brady's 2 pt conversion pass attempt which would have sent the game to OT, with seconds remaining. He continues to look very good.

Someone asked why TJ has not been active for a Texans game yet. I am guessing it's due to lack of knowing the plays.

Guy refers to Tyler Johnson as a veteran.....


HOUSTON — Tyler Johnson has yet to play a game for the Houston Texans this season, but the 6-foot-1 wide receiver has already started to make an impact behind the scenes.

"I like T [Tyler Johnson] — he’s got that dog mentality into him as well," Brandin Cooks said. "A guy that can go in there and block but also can catch those tough contested balls. Look forward to adding him to the group whenever that may be."

Houston claimed Johnson from the NFL's waiver wire 24 hours after his release from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in August. Johnson understood his departure from Tampa Bay was a business decision during the NFL's cutdown day but was thankful to be joining the Texans.

Coach Lovie Smith revealed that Johnson had been a player the organization liked for a "period of time" and took advantage of the opportunity when he became available.

Houston's acquisition of Johnson added depth to a modest wide receiver corps entering the 2022 season. But ahead of the Texans' Week 3 match against the 1-1 Chicago Bears on Sunday, Johnson has yet to see the field.

Johnson has been a healthy scratch through the first two games. He is still getting himself acclimated to the Texans' playbook. According to Smith, Johnson is progressing in the right direction and will eventually have a chance to be a part of the game-day roster.

"Not playing the first few games has given me more time to go out there and learn the playbook," Johnson exclusively told Texans Daily. "Whenever I get the chance to go out there, it would not be too much thinking. I'm excited. I cannot wait to get out there on the field to help and contribute to the team."

The Texans' offense has been insufficient through the first two weeks. But Johnson believes he has the attributes needed in hopes of helping the team.

Offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton describes Johnson as a young physical player who is built well and can play in tight spaces. Hamilton's illustration of Johnson during practices is the same attributes that made him a quality pass catcher as a member of the Buccaneers.
