Recent Game Summaries
2015 Week 16 vs TEN (11 / 38 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Chris Polk found his was into the game late in the third quarter and ripped the longest run of the day for 17 yards when he went around the left side of the offensive line. Polk was brought in to ice the game and had runs of 6, 4 and a few two yard gains to complete his day. The Texans decided to rest Blue late in the game and opt for Polk, and it appears that Polk's time on the field is dwindling with Blue now being healthy.
2015 Week 14 vs NE (11 / 34 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec)
Polk received his first NFL start and his hard running style produced only 34 yards with nine yards being his long run. The effort is there but the talent is suspect and he continues to be a straight ahead runner with little break away speed. Polk caught a nine yard pass from Hoyer in the flats early in the first quarter but it was an overall unimpressive day for Polk on the ground and through the air.
2015 Week 13 vs BUF (12 / 61 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 11 / 1 rec)
Polk ended up being the go-to back for the offense and it was a surprise. He had his longest run of the season for 20 yards and after that averaged 4.0 yards a run on the other 10 carries. The offensive line controlled the line of scrimmage and made life easy for Polk running the ball. Polk got into the end zone on a 11 yard pass to the flats while running over a defender in the process and diving over the pylon. Today was easily the most productive day of Polk in a Texans uniform.
2015 Week 8 vs TEN (8 / 18 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
Chris Polk much like Blue is getting touches when he comes in for Blue. Second on the team with 13 total touches for 22 total yards and he has been not been eating up yards like his counterpart in Blue. Polk is getting work on the field but not producing from a number standpoint.
2015 Week 7 vs MIA (4 / 4 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec)
Chris Polk did spot duty when Arian Foster needed a break and he continues to help in the passing game. He is doing majority of his work when he goes into routes in the flat and he had two key first down receptions for 8 and 6 yards. He continues to find his way on the field because of his ability to pass protect.
2015 Week 6 vs JAX (8 / 37 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 2 / 0 rec)
Chris Polk came in and gave Arian Foster the break he needed to take some workload off of him. He has a long run of 12 yards and was able to push ahead late in the game in some short yardage situations to help move the chains. Polk also had his mop up rushing yards late in the game when the Texans were up on the Jaguars.
2015 Week 5 vs IND (1 / 5 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)
Polk ended up taking the snaps that Blue left on the field after going out injured. Polk had two receptions and was the primary back for pass pro in some 2-minute drill situations. He only had one run for 5-yards but his main purpose is to help in pass protection.
2015 Week 4 vs ATL (3 / 27 / 1 rush, 4 / 3 / 23 / 0 rec)
Polk ended up on the field after Foster was done for the day and ended up on the field for third down situations. Polk had a long run of 17 yards in garbage time and ended up getting a one-yard touchdown run after Blue could not finish a run on the goal line. If backfield was healthy and the Texans were keeping it close and productive Polk would have seen little time on the field.
2015 Week 3 vs TB (5 / 5 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
it was an uneventful day for Polk, one key run for six yards but after that he was ineffective. Polk's lack of pass protection that led to an interception got him a place on the bench.
2015 Week 2 vs CAR (14 / 38 / 0 rush, 8 / 2 / 9 / 0 rec)
It was a high volume day for Polk with 16 total touches but he had very little to show for it his total yardage. his runs are uneventful and his long run was for 13 yards on a simple and well blocked zone play. Polk continues to get plenty of touches on the field but he continues to have limited vision with the ball in his hands. His biggest moment came late in the game when the Texans were driving and he caught a pass in the flats with room to run but stepped out of bounds leaving at least seven yards on the field. His lack of awareness is something that continues to show the more he is on the field.
2015 Week 1 vs KC (5 / 22 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
Despite his dancing on the field, Polk had a productive day when he touched the football. With a long run of 13 yards, Polk struggled running in between the tackles. After his big run he only had a long run of two yards on his remain four carries. He did catch one screen pass for nine yards. His numbers look decent on paper but his day was just two decent plays on the day.
