RB Jonathan Wells - Free Agent
|6-1, 243||Born: 7-21-1979||College: Ohio State||Drafted: Round 4, pick 0|
2005 Week 2 vs PIT (3 / 8 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
Wells was used to spell Davis and had 12 yards, eight rushing and four receiving.
2005 Week 4 vs CIN (1 / 10 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 5 / 0 rec)
Wells was used as the primary back to spell Domanick Davis in this game and got three touches. Vernand Morency did not receive any touches in this game, and Tony Hollings was inactive.
2005 Week 5 vs TEN (3 / 7 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)
Wells spelled Davis a handful of times.
2005 Week 6 vs SEA (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 16 / 0 rec)
Wells caught one of two targets for a 16 yard gain, but was otherwise not a factor.
2005 Week 9 vs JAX (13 / 56 / 1 rush, 5 / 5 / 45 / 0 rec)
Wells had a solid overall game, subbing for the injured Domanick Davis. He displayed his power in his runs, which were almost exclusively designed to go up the middle, and was effective in the passing game as an outlet receiver for Carr, displaying good hands and catching all of the passes thrown to him.
2005 Week 10 vs IND (15 / 58 / 1 rush, 3 / 3 / 17 / 0 rec)
Wells started in place of Davis, rushing 15 times for 58 yards and a touchdown. The touchdown came as a carry off the left tackle where he pushed through, made a move, and plowed forward for the score. Since it was inside the two minute mark, the play was reviewed upstairs, and held up. Wells ran well, and was effective on an offense struggling to move the ball. He was certainly the bright spot for the Texans on the day. Morency did cut into his carries, but it was to spell Wells, not because he wasn't running well.
2005 Week 11 vs KC (1 / -2 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Wells was a non factor in this game. He managed negative yards rushing and had one minor kickoff return when the Chiefs kicked short to avoid another return by Jerome Mathis.
2005 Week 12 vs STL (1 / 10 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 19 / 0 rec)
Wells had two touches on offense, a carry and a catch. He ran for ten yards on the first scoring drive for the Texans in the first quarter. He also added a 19 yard catch in the second quarter. Both plays were good for first downs. Wells also fielded a short kickoff in the final minute of the first half and returned it for 40 yards, setting up Houston for a short scoring drive before halftime.
2005 Week 13 vs BAL (2 / 2 / 0 rush, 5 / 2 / 12 / 0 rec)
Wells was used sparingly to spell Davis. He didn't produce much on the ground, but did add a few catches.
2005 Week 14 vs TEN (2 / 3 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Wells spelled RB Domanick Davis briefly, carrying the ball twice when Davis needed a play off.
2005 Week 15 vs ARI (28 / 87 / 2 rush, 2 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)
Wells filled in for injured starter Domanick Davis and had a career high 28 carries. He responded with 87 yards and set another career high with two rushing scores. Both of his rushing scored came in the second quarter, from seven and three yards out. Wells also had one reception for 11 yards.
2005 Week 16 vs JAX (21 / 86 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 33 / 0 rec)
Wells filled in for an inactive Domanick Davis (knee) and had another solid performance. Although he could not duplicate last week's two touchdown output, Wells produced 86 yards on 21 carries. He fought for most of his yards against a stingy Jacksonville defense often lowering his shoulder and powering his way for that extra yard or two. His longest run of the game was 13 yards when he found an opening in the middle then bounced outside before being hauled down by the defender.
