Marlon Mack, RB (SF)

Atop depth chart with Burkhead

Mack and Rex Burkhead are listed as the first running backs on the Texans' unofficial depth chart for the preseason opener against the Saints on Saturday, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The two veterans lead the position group, with Mack's name listed first. It was presumed the former Colt would be the team's lead back, but the Texans want to see him prove it during preseason game action, as Mack is coming off an Achilles injury that wiped out his 2020 season and was used sparingly (six games, 57 snaps) in 2021. Dameon Pierce, a 2022 fourth-round pick out of Florida, is third in line.
