Hollings faced 2 major challenges, not 1:
a) learning to play RB in the NFL, with limited college experience at RB;
b) coming back from a major knee injury that some say is a two year project (see Edrin James)
The Texans have shown the ability to avoid making a bunch of knee-jerk, distructive reactions. I'm sure they are bringing Hollings along in a way and on a timetable they are comfortable with, even if we aren't fully aware of it.
