If injured players are healthy the Texans have veterans at every position except one – kicker. Coach Gary Kubiak and special teams coordinator Joe Marciano are placing a lot of faith in Randy Bullock the second-year kicker who spent his rookie season on injured reserve with a severe groin injury. This is the first time in franchise history the Texans have entered a season with a kicker who is untested in the NFL. But Kubiak and Marciano have so much confidence in Bullock that they didn’t sign another kicker to compete with him in camp and preseason. “He showed us a lot before he got hurt” Kubiak said as he prepared for his eighth training camp with the Texans. “We believe in him because we know what he’s capable of doing.” Bullock a Klein native who played at Texas A&M was selected in the fifth round in 2012. He is the only kicker the Texans have drafted and he has a big right shoe to fill.
Texans’ eyes will be on Bullock to shine
