from www.kffl.com Texans | Team to expand Bruener's role Fri, 9 Jun 2006 15:34:30 -0700 Carmine Pirone, of HoustonTexans.com, reports the Houston Texans will ask their tight ends to be more than just blockers this coming season, particularly TE Mark Bruener. "We're asking him to do more running down the field than he's done in the past," Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said. "But he's doing a good job. He's a leader on this team. Guys respect him."
