Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 6 vs BUF (7 / 26 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)

Texans decided to turn to Alfred Blue when they needed the running game to wake up and he had the longest rush of the day for both sides with a 17-yard gain. Blue is unlucky with the offensive line getting beat and creating some negative runs for him. Blue also had a key reception on the final drive for 14-yards. Blue is going to continue to spell Miller moving forward but how he is used when Foreman returns is going to be interesting to watch.

2018 Week 5 vs DAL (20 / 46 / 0 rush, 8 / 8 / 73 / 0 rec)

It was the Alfred Blue show on Sunday night and the Texans had him on the field for all but one offensive snap. There were a lot of short runs and even some negative runs but he provided some of the best work for a running back they have had all season. With 119 total yards, 46 rushing and 73 receiving, it was a solid effort from the veteran back. His 28 yard reception that had a stiff arm involved too and that has been the longest reception of the season from that position. He also found some cut back creases in the run game and his longest run was 17 yards on the night. It was a strong effort for Blue on the night and was instrumental on getting the offense out of some tight holes.

2018 Week 4 vs IND (13 / 31 / 0 rush, 3 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

After Miller went out, the Texans turned to Blue and his longest rush was 10 yards but the offense stubbornly ran the football to keep the Colts honest defensibly. Blue had a bad drop late in the game when Watson hit him square in his hands. The Texans running backs have been suspect the past two weeks and Blue is the one that will gain positive yards but not in big chunks. With Miller banged up, it could mean more opportunities for him.

2018 Week 2 vs TEN (7 / 36 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Alfred Blue continues to spell Lamar Miller at times in the offense and he continued to produce in the running game. Blue has 7 carries for 36 yards and he continues to eat up yards when he is in the game. One thing that shows when Blue is in the game, he eats up yards in a hurry and is able to get the Texans offense in a quick flow running plays. He didn't get a touchdown like last week but he had some good work for the offense.

2018 Week 1 vs NE (5 / 36 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

There were only 10 offensive snaps for Blue but he produced 36 yards on 5 carries. Which was more impressive is how he pounded the rock and moved the pile. Blue had a 1-yard touchdown run to get the Texans their first touchdown of the season. Blue remains a spot filler for Miller but it was a good showing for the veteran back.
