    Houston signed fullback Vonta Leach on Monday in the latest effort to jump-start the stalled running game.

    Leach played the past two seasons in Green Bay before being released last month and spending 11 days with the Saints. He appeared in one game for the Packers this season and never played for the Saints.

    Primarily a blocking fullback, Leach appeared in every game for the Packers last season, with five starts and no carries.

    Coach Gary Kubiak hopes the addition will help a running game averaging just 76 yards a game. Leach joins fellow fullback Jameel Cook in Houston.

    "We've got to get better with Jameel and him as far as our two-back offense is concerned,'' Kubiak said. "We've done some good things throwing the ball. We've got to get better running the ball to help our team out.''

    The Texans have used Ron Dayne, Samkon Gado and rookie Wali Lundy at running back, but none of the players has managed even 60 yards rushing in a game.

    Strange how these ex-Packers are being signed by the team with the ex-Packers coach...coincidence? I think not.

    That's usually how it works....i.e. Koren Robinson and Marquand Manuel.
