Default Houston Texans' Jacoby Jones looks for success at receiver

Quote:
HOUSTON - Jacoby Jones has made himself a special teams star in two years in Houston, becoming the only Texan to return two punts for touchdowns.

Now the Texans are looking for him to show some of that talent at receiver.

The Texans are deep at the position with starters Andre Johnson and Kevin Walter as well as Andre' Davis and David Anderson. But Houston would love to take advantage of Jones' speed.

Jones has more than 1,000 yards in kick and punt returns combined in his career, but just 18 receptions for 230 yards.

"He's been capable of doing great things for this team, but we've also seen the side that has not been so good," coach Gary Kubiak said. "I think it's about ... being consistent. It's about maturity."

Consistency has been a constant battle for Jones, a third-round draft pick out of tiny Lane College in Jackson, Tenn. He'll impress one week and struggle the next. Sometimes he'll do both in the same practice, which is what he did Thursday.

A mistake by Jones on a route led to an interception, which drew the ire of Kubiak. A few plays later, he bolted ahead of the coverage and stretched out to make a nifty catch in the end zone.

"It's time to go play and you should be practising pretty solid today and know what you're doing, and he's got a few mistakes today," Kubiak said. "Pros don't make mistakes two days before the game. ... But he's working toward getting better."

With the talent ahead of Jones, he'll have to eliminate those mistakes if he hopes to see more playing time at receiver this season.

Yeah, we're looking for it too...

18 receptions? I didn't even know he had that many.
