If you listen to what Brian Gaine, general manager of the Houston Texans, didn't say on Thursday at the 2019 NFL Combine, you may agree with In The Loop's John Lopez and Landry Locker about how the Houston Texans will "spend a premium price/draft pick on running back."

“Lamar Miller was our starting back last year, was a borderline 1,000-yard rusher. Unfortunately, he missed a game or two. He probably would’ve gotten 1,000 yards on the season – three-down back. Unfortunately, (D’Onta) Foreman had his injury last year. He came back at the end of the season. We’re optimistic about a very positive return in his contributions. We saw glimpses of that the previous season. Also impressed us in the passing game, so we’re optimistic that those guys will be back and intact. We like the composition of the current depth chart. Then, we’re going to evaluate the draft here coming up. Ideally, we’d love to have a committee backfield and have contributions from various players, but Lamar was a three-down back last year and we’re optimistic that Foreman will return to full health.”

With no mention of Texans' running back, Alfred Blue, with Gaine's comments about evaluating in the draft, and with how many running backs the Houston Texans are meeting with at the 2019 NFL Combine, you could say the Texans are in the market for a running back.
