Reading the coverage of the Houston Texans...
Texans defensive line coach Bill Kollar was inducted into the Senior Bowl Hall of fame, writes Mark Inabinett of the Birmingham News. Kollar was the Senior Bowl MVP in 1974.
"He's definitely a heck of a talent," Kollar said of Jadeveon Clowney. "Obviously, he didn't have the year that he would have liked to statistic-wise this year like he did the year before. You still see it. He got double-teamed a lot and everything else, but without a doubt, he's still a heck of a football player.
"And the same with that Khalil Mack. I mean he is something when you end up watching him. I don't know if you'd say he's a dark horse, but you really hadn't heard that much about him earlier in the year. As the year progressed, he just kept playing better and better and has really put himself in a good position right now."
And speaking of Hall of Fames, Andre Johnson was inducted into the University of Miami sports hall of fame, writes Susan Miller Degnan and Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald. Marc Vandermeer, currently the voice of the Texans, was the voice of Johnson's Miami team and posted this photo.

Foster, who had back surgery in November, made the statement at a media availability before he Houston premiere of "Draft Day," the movie starring Kevin Costner and Jennifer Garner in which Foster had a part.
