Quick Take: Broncos vs. Texans

Keep your eye on ...

1. Denver running backs: Selvin Young came into the league as an undrafted rookie and a year later sits atop the depth chart in Denver. This week in camp, fifth-round pick Ryan Torain broke his elbow and the Broncos will look for undrafted rookie Anthony Alridge or second-year player Andre Hall to make a name for himself in the preseason.

2. Denver kicker Matt Prater: Second-year man Prater has big shoes to fill, as three-time Pro Bowler Jason Elam, who kicked four game winners for the Broncos last year, signed with the Falcons in the offseason.

3. Texans QB Matt Schaub: Fans in Houston are eager to see what Schaub can do when consistantly healthy. He missed the final four games last year but he'll be under center with the first-team and looking to reconnect with WR Andre Johnson.

4. Texans rookie RB Steve Slaton: With a few impressive cutbacks in the preseason, the diminutive third-round pick out of West Virginia has a chance to prove he can be the reliable third-down back the team needs.
