Trindon Holliday about done in Houston

Sounds to me like Trindon Holliday’s chance to win a spot as a return specialist is about over in Houston.

Asked about Jacoby Jones' expected contribution on special teams, Gary Kubiak told Houston media: “Oh yeah, he’ll definitely be our punt returns and Danieal [Manning] will be our kick returner. It’s time for [Jones] to have some of those returns. He’s had some in the past and it’s time for him to get back on the top of his game.”

Cornerback Johnathan Joseph (groin) will play Saturday in San Francisco. Linebacker DeMeco Ryans (elbow) will be assessed Thursday and might play.

Kubiak said starters will go three quarters and that Derrick Ward and Ben Tate will spell Arian Foster at running back when needed and then one will get the fourth quarter.
