Texans' Tremon Smith gets his turn at running back

Growing up in Alabama, Texans cornerback and kickoff returner Tremon Smith was a versatile high school football player.

He went to the state semifinals at Saks High School while playing quarterback, safety and returning kickoffs and punts.

With a 98-yard touchdown return a week ago and being one of the fastest players on the Texans' roster, Smith got a turn at running back Sunday during a 41-29 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers. On a toss sweep, Smith rushed for seven yards.

"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.”
