News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 7): Hyde got a heavy workload as the Texans controlled the second half of the win over the Falcons, and while he wasn't efficient, he scored and should continue to occupy that role. The Texans should try to lean on him against the Chiefs this week and emulate the Colts winning game plan.
General News (Fri Oct 11): practiced fully on Friday and is not on the team's injury report. He will be available to play this week.
General News (Thu Oct 10): practiced fully on Thursday.
General News (Wed Oct 9): practiced fully on Wednesday.
Week 6: at Kansas City Chiefs
FBG says: Great matchup. The Texans ground game looked good for the second straight week as Carlos Hyde and Duke Johnson combined for 119 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Hyde continues to serve as the clear lead back in this offense, out carrying Johnso in all five games with at least twice as many rushing attempts as Johnson in each of the last four weeks. Hyde saw a season-high 21 rushing attempts last week while finding the end zone for the second time this season. Johnson has yet to see double-digit carries nor eclipse the 60-yard mark in a game despite the relative timeshare with Hyde from a snap percent perspective. Deshaun Watson put up 47 rushing yards last week, his second game with at least 40 rushing yards this season. He now has three rushing touchdowns on the year and continues to serve as a dynamic dual-threat with the ball in his hands. Houston's offensive line has shown improvement as the season progressed as this mixed age group is coming together slowly. Laremy Tunsil is starting to come around, but rookie left guard Max Scharping continues to struggle on running downs, making Tunsil's left side tough to trust as a whole. This is still an average line as they are rolling out two rookies, but they look better than they did to start the season and should have an upward trajectory as the rookies settle in. The Chiefs defense got relatively banged up in last week's loss to the Colts, as linebacker Anthony Hitchens along with tackles Xavier Williams and Chris Jones all left the game early due to injury. Neither Williams nor Jones look probably to return this week, which is a huge blow to the Chiefs defense. If Hitchens misses as well, this will be a severely depleted front seven that was already allowing the second-most rushing yards per game (134) to opposing running backs. The absence of Chris Jones, in particular, puts this group into crisis mode as Derrick Nnadi, rookie Khalen Saunders, and new signee Terrell McClain stack up to be a very beatable defensive interior with virtually no other depth to rotate in. Hitchens was not playing well against the run, but he still has been the every-down starter and would cause even worse options from this thin linebacker corps to rotate in. The outlook is very positive for both Houston running backs and Deshaun Watson in this one--they all have a great chance to break free through the middle of this defense.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 5 vs ATL (21 / 60 / 1 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
It was another productive day for running back Carlos Hyde who was able to get back into the end zone with a one-yard touchdown run. Hyde was able to cap off a near touchdown from Will Fuller. Hyde's longest run was 14-yards but outside of that is was tough sledding for him. He did have a fumble in the first drive of the game after a Falcons defensive lineman got int he backfield to punch the ball out. Hyde remains the Texans top back to tote the ball
2019 Week 4 vs CAR (12 / 58 / 0 rush, 5 / 4 / 6 / 0 rec)
Carlos Hyde's best run of the day came on what was not a designed run. It was a lateral on a missed pass protection call. Watson was able to find Hyde last minute and hit him for a 25-yard run. Outside of that run, Hyde has been wildly inconsistent running the football compared to the first two weeks of the season. Hyde is giving up on his blocking too quick and not getting downhill as he did in the first two games of the season. Hyde only had 35 yards outside of that 25-yard broken play averaging 3.2 yards per carry.
2019 Week 3 vs LAC (10 / 19 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
It was a slow day for Carlos Hyde and part of it was due to him giving up on his blocking too soon. There were creases for him to work but Hyde was attempting to get to the cut back lanes too quick not following his blocking. Hyde did have a 3-yard touchdown run to get the scoring going for the Texans to start the game.
2019 Week 2 vs JAX (20 / 90 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
When the Texans needed a spark, they turned to Carlos Hyde to handle the run game. 20 carries and the continues to get the bulk of the work in the running game. He had strong runs and no negative runs. Two of Hyde's longest runs of the night were 14 and 11 yards, and on both runs, he finished by running over defenders. The Texans went away from Hyde in the red zone, which is unfortunate with how well that ran the football.
2019 Week 1 vs NO (10 / 83 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 2 / 0 rec)
A surprised in the running game, Carlos Hyde was able to infuse lift into the backfield. Hyde was breaking the first tackle consistently and eating up yards. His longest run was 20-yards and he averaged 8.3 yards a carry. He was productive moving the football and appears to be in line to be the Texans primary ball carrier in the running game.

Hyde will face the Colts next week coming off of his best game of the year and Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman will run at a weary Chiefs defense on Thursday.
