Oct. 14, 2012
 

Here is Pete Dougherty's scouting report on the Houston Texans' special teams:

The Texans have sound veteran kicking specialists in punter Donnie Jones and kicker Shayne Graham. Jones, a ninth-year pro on his fourth team, is in his second season with the Texans. He has a solid 45.4-yard career gross average, including 46.0 yards this season (tied for No. 16 in the NFL). His 38.6-yard net is No. 19 in the league.

Graham, who is 34 and in his 11th NFL season, has an excellent career make percentage of 86.2 on field goals, including 10 of 11 this season. His career long is 53 yards.

Tiny return man Trindon Holliday (5-5, 169) was a football and track athlete at LSU and ran the 40 in 4.34 seconds at the NFL scouting combine. This preseason he returned two punts and a kickoff for touchdowns but hasnít been striking fear into special teams coaches in the regular season, where heís averaging 9.2 yards on 16 punt returns and 19.4 yards on 10 kickoff returns.
