News: Grimes had 33 yards on eight carries and 11 yards on one reception in Thursday's preseason finale against the 49ers. Impact: Grimes outperformed Alfred Blue, who got the start but managed just -3 yards on four carries and 26 yards on two receptions. The two would likely split work in the event of an Arian Foster injury, but it's not entirely clear which player is first in line for touches behind Foster. While it may be that the usage will be situation dependent, Blue is listed ahead of Grimes on the latest unofficial depth chart, according to CSN Houston's Dave Zangaro.(RotoWire, )

News: Grimes had five carries for 22 yards and a touchdown and one reception for 24 yards on one target in Saturday's preseason game against the Broncos. Impact: As reported by The Houston Chronicle's John McClain, Grimes was announced as the starter but Alfred Blue actually played the first snap. Both backs were active with the first-team offense, and Blue also saw a bit of work with the second-stringers. On the Texans' scoring drive in the first half, Blue picked up four yards on a fourth-and-one from the Denver five-yard line, and Grimes got a one-yard touchdown on the next play. Arian Foster (hamstring) is on track to be ready for Week 1, and while Grimes has seemingly done enough to hold onto the second spot on the depth chart, Blue might pick up a spare touch or three. Should Foster suffer a setback or come down with a new injury, the Texans would likely use both Grimes and Blue. Grimes is still the preferred handcuff, especially in PPR formats.(RotoWire, )
