Don't be surprised if Glenn Earl, the Texans' fourth-round pick from Notre Dame, eventually ends up pushing starter Eric Brown at strong safety. Brown struggles in coverage, which is among Earl's many strengths. However, Earl did suffer a season-ending knee injury as a senior.
I really didnt think we would be seeing that much action from Earl that early, because of his injury and all. Seems like he must be recovering fairly quick.
