Kubiak not committing to starting running back

From the Houston Chronicle:

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — The first time Texans running back Steve Slaton touched the ball Sunday, on a dump pass from Matt Schaub, he cradled it in both hands well before he collided with Buffalo cornerback Terrence McGee.

Slaton's propensity to fumble this season — he had lost four, twice as many as all of last year — had become a worry for the Texans, and the NFL's 2008 rookie rushing champion seemed determined to put the problem behind him. But he hadn't.

Two series later, after fielding another short pass from Schaub, he got the ball swatted loose, and that was the end of his workday.

Three-touchdown day

Benched in favor of Ryan Moats, Slaton must be wondering if he'll get his starting job back. The previously little-used Moats wasn't in a sharing mood against the Bills. He rushed for 126 yards and three fourth-quarter touchdowns as the Texans overwhelmed the Bills 31-10.
