Arian's past struggles can't solely be blamed on the FB position & Casey. The right side of the o-line needs to progress because it seemed the Texans early on favored running to the left side due to the right sides struggles. Doesn't take much to defend the run if you can only run to one side effectively. If the right continues to struggle then a bruising FB may help a little, but can't completely offset poor o-line play. Just for the record, I believe they will get better on the right side as they are all young & have gained valuable experience this past season.
