Jonathan Grimes looks solid in big action


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Texans running back Jonathan Grimes thrived in his first extended action in Week 17, topping 100 all-purpose yards in a 16-10 loss to the Titans.

Grimes didn't have much success running the ball, finishing with just 50 yards despite 12 carries. He shined as a receiver, however, leading the team with six receptions for 76 yards. He added his first career touchdown on a 3-yard run in the first game.

Injuries pushed Grimes into action only recently, as he appeared in just the team's final two games. 


Jonathan Grimes facing solid matchup in likely first start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2013) Texans running back Jonathan Grimes is expected to step into the starting lineup in Week 17 against the Titans, thanks to a number of injuries in the team's backfield.

Grimes, an undrafted free-agent out of College of William & Mary,  enters the week with just 29 rushing yards to his name at the NFL level. He rushed the ball five times for 23 yards last week, in his first action of the season. Though he is a total unknown, Grimes may actually find some room to succeed this week, against a vulnerable Titans defense.

The Titans have allowed 19 touchdowns by opposing running backs this season, along with 151.3 all-purpose yards per game. As a result, they are surrendering 21.2 Fantasy points per game to running backs, the fourth-worst total in the league.

Grimes has no track record of success at the NFL, so starting him represents a total roll of the dice. Still, he might surprise given such a solid matchup. 


Jonathan Grimes new top back from battered Texans


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2013) The Texans are set to start Jonathan Grimes as their featured back Sunday at Tennessee. Grimes rushed for 23 yards in five carries in Week 16 against Denver for his only action this season. The Texans have been battered with injuries in the backfield.

Jonathan Grimes has 23 rushing yards in loss


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) Texans running back Jonathan Grimes came into Sunday's 37-13 loss to the Broncos in relief of an injured Deji Karim, carrying the ball five times for 23 yards. All of his carries came in the fourt quarter. 

Grimes, who was signed by the Texans earlier this week, may be pressed into Week 17 duty against the Titans, as Dennis Johnson appeared to hurt his hamstring in the game, and Karim went to the locker room limping in the fourth quarter. 

Grimes is in his second year of professional football. He had two career carries before Sunday's game. 


Texans bring in Jonathan Grimes


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2013) The Texans have signed running back Jonathan Grimes to replace Ben Tate, whom they moved to IR with a rib injury. Grimes played with three different teams in 2012, including Houston. He rushed for 6 yards on two carries and caught two passes for 7 yards.

Jaguars add Grimes into mix


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2012) The Jaguars added depth to their ailing backfield Friday, claiming running back Jonathan Grimes off waivers from the Texans. Grimes was released by Houston earlier this week after suiting up for just six games with the team after being dropped by the Jets.
