Hyde thrives for Texans in wake of injury to Miller

HOUSTON (AP) After Lamar Miller went out with a season-ending knee injury in the preseason the Houston Texans needed someone to step in immediately to carry the running game.

Carlos Hyde has filled that role in the first two games, despite being with the team only two weeks after a trade from Kansas City on Aug. 31. Hyde ran for 90 yards on Sunday to help Houston to a 13-12 win over the Jaguars. That performance came after he had 83 yards rushing in the opener.

"I'm hungry," he said. "I'm out there on a mission. I've got a chip on my shoulder coming into this year. So I'm running angry, running mad, and it's been paying off for me."
