Pollard embracing second chance with Texans
Question of the Day
Pollard said he’s motivated every day by his release from the Chiefs, and the faith that coach Gary Kubiak and the Texans have put in him. Instead of one chip on his shoulder, Pollard jokes that he has a full bag.
“In life, a lot of people don’t get second chances. You screw up, or something’s taken away from you and sometimes it never comes back around,” he said. “My second chance came around, and I played and God was watching.
“That door was closed in Kansas City,” he said. “This is a new beginning for me, and for my family. I’m humbled and grateful for what’s been done and I’m going to be here to show coach Kubiak and Rick and all of them that you guys made a good decision. I will not let them down.”
NOTES: LB Brian Cushing sat out Wednesday morning’s practice for what Kubiak deemed “personal business.” Kubiak said Cushing’s absence was expected and was “no big deal.” … The Texans set out a miniature pink tricycle as a joke on rookie kick returner Trindon Holliday, the NFL’s shortest player at 5-foot-5. Holliday squeezed onto the tricycle and briefly rode it on the sideline at the end of practice.
