Bernard Pollard to Start at Safety in Week Four

The Houston Chronicle reports that Bernard Pollard will start this week:

Ten days after signing with the Texans, strong safety Bernard Pollard will be in the starting lineup against the Oakland Raiders, a team he knows well. Pollard spent his first three seasons at Kansas City, the last two as a starter, and played against the Raiders twice a season. Perhaps his familiarity with the Raiders and running backs Darren McFadden, Michael Bush and Justin Fargas will enable Pollard to help a defense that ranks 32nd in the NFL, including last in rushing. “They’re a three-headed monster,” Pollard said after practice Thursday, “and they all run downhill. McFadden has great speed. Fargas might be more of a downhill runner. Bush is shifty. I don’t care if he’s the biggest, he’s still shifty. We have to tackle and take the running game away. If they throw it, we have to take it away. If we take the ball, our offense is going to put points on the road.”
