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.
