HOUSTON (CBS Houston) – Five months after he tore his Achilles in the Texans playoff loss in New England, Posey returned to the field this week for rehab drills.  According to head coach Gary Kubiak, Posey is certainly making a case for an early return from his torn Achilles injury.

“Watching Posey, looks like Posey’s going to put a lot pressure on us to probably get back earlier than we expect and that’s a good thing. So I think we’re young but I think we got a chance to be pretty good out there,” Kubiak said Wednesday.

Still unable to practice, Posey took to the field for some on-field running and agility work during the team’s mandatory minicamp. Posey has been present throughout OTAs, studying the playbook, and working out his upper body and core while he undergoes rehab.

Posey has competition for the second wide receiver position opposite Andre Johnson from the Texans’ first-round draft pick DeAndre Hopkins, as well as Lestar Jean and Keyshawn Martin. While Posey wants to avoid starting the season on the Physically Unable to Perform List, his return is not expected before the middle of the 2013 season.

“I was impressed,” Kubiak said after Tuesday’s minicamp. “I watched from afar while he was doing his work over there, but I watched him run and watched him work. Like I told him, hopefully he makes a real tough decision on us as we get towards camp and those PUP decisions and that type of stuff. Hopefully it’s going to be a very, very tough one, but he’s doing his job. He’s working hard.”
