RTC: Katrina brought Lewis to Houston

By Tania Ganguli

Reading the coverage of the Houston Texans...

Kendrick Lewis wasn't sure his family had gotten out of New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005, but he watched television from Houston, where he had relocated with his uncle, constantly hoping to see them. One day he did. He saw his family boarding a bus that a reporter on television said was headed for Reliant Stadium. So he went there to meet them. Driving up to what's now NRG Stadium brings back bad memories for Lewis, but he tries not to think about them. Lewis talked about that journey on Thursday. Jenny Dial Creech of the Houston Chronicle and Dave Zangaro of each gave offered their perspectives on his story.

Jerrell Powe and Lewis might be unexpected leaders on the Texans' defense, writes Deepi Sidhu of “I kind of help the guys on small details on what Romeo expects and how to play the defense,” Powe told Texans' Radio. “A couple of guys asked me about certain techniques and I help them out, let them know what Romeo expects, how he likes things done and the do’s and the don’ts just to keep him happy. When he walks into the meeting and he’s happy with us, he’s pretty pleased with practice.”

Arian Foster is sad Andre Johnson wants to leave him. But he refuses to let him go. If he has to beg and plead for his sympathy, he doesn't mind because he means that much to him, writes Garrett Heinrich of SportsRadio610 (sort of). If the Temptations are now stuck in your head... you're welcome.
