Default Houston looks to Bennett to lead

Quote:

HOUSTON -- Cornerback Fred Bennett has never lacked confidence, exuding it from the moment he was drafted by Texans in 2007.

It helped that his friend and college mentor Dunta Robinson was already starring in the Texans secondary when he arrived in Houston.

With Robinson skipping camp in a contract holdout and six-year veteran Jacques Reeves out with a broken leg, the Texans are counting on Bennett to use that confidence and lead this shaky group.

Coach Gary Kubiak said Bennett's more mature this year. He also said the absence of Reeves and Robinson creates an opportunity for the 25-year-old Bennett, who struggled a bit last season after a solid rookie year.

"All those young guys are looking at him, basically six young guys watching Fred," Kubiak said. "That's unusual to be in year three and be the big veteran in the group. That's another challenge for him."

It's a role that Bennett is working to embrace but is still a bit foreign to him.

"For them to be coming to me and taking it in from me I'm like: 'Wow, I really am the leader back here,' so it's fun," Bennett said.

He started eight games as a rookie, filling in when Robinson was injured, and led the team with three interceptions, but started just six games last year with Robinson healthy and Reeves playing well.
