Houston Texans running back Lamar Miller is open to the team bringing in veteran free agent running back Adrian Peterson.
Miller made the comments during a recent appearance on the NFL Network.
“I used to look up to Adrian Peterson growing up,” Miller said. “He runs the ball hard. He’s a great running back. He’s been a great running back in this league for years. It would be good to have him join us, just his leadership, seeing the things he’s done in previous years, that I feel like I could probably learn from him. It would help us out as a team.”
Houston could use some more help in the backfield, with D’Onta Freeman recovering from a torn Achilles that could hold him out of the start of the season, and Alfred Blue, already behind Miller.
Bills’ Matt Milano Out for Season
Milano, 24, was a standout for the Bills’ defense during their upset victory over the Minnesota Vikings which earned him AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors.
Milano’s spot on the roster is likely to be filled by Deon Lacey.
Raiders Fire Reggie McKenzie
The Oakland Raiders have fired general manager Reggie McKenzie, according to NFL Network insiders Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero.
Raiders head coach Jon Gruden dodged questions regarding McKenzie’s job status following Sunday’s game;
“I don’t have any comment on that,” Gruden said, according to Michael Gehlken of the Review-Journal. “We’re going to build this team back. I know that. We’re going to bring the Raiders back.”
Raiders’ Jon Feliciano Done For Season
The Oakland Raiders will be without left guard Jon Feliciano who suffered a calk injury that will likely shut him down for the remainder of the season, according to the Las Vegas Review Journal’s Michael Gehlken.
Feliciano suffered the injury during Oakland’s surprise win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.
Feliciano, 26, is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and is a strong candidate to be re-signed by the rebuilding Raiders.
