The Texans have "high expectations" for NT D.J. Reader.
Reader is taking over for Vince Wilfork in the middle of Houston’s defense. He played in all 16 games (seven starts) as a run stopper last year, grading as PFF’s No. 51 tackle. The Texans added rookie Carlos Watkins to their defensive line rotation, but Reader should be a lock for 500-plus snaps. Jul 7 - 6:07 PM
