Houston (CBS Houston) – Charles James acting, or maybe not acting, has never been in question more than it has been since the Texans week two win against Kansas City.
With 2:56 left to play in the fourth quarter, Chiefs returner, Tyreek Hill, returned a kickoff that would have trimmed the Texans lead to a single possession. There was just one problem; Steven Nelson of the Chiefs was called for holding Charles James. Kansas City head coach, Andy Reid, didn’t agree.
“(James) knew he was outflanked, so he literally flopped. Nelson put his hands out, put him down and the kid just jumped into his body. Obviously from the officials’ perspective it didn’t look like that,” Reid told The Kansas City Star.
James initially didn’t want to address Reid’s comments, instead wanting to focus on this week’s game against the Patriots, but James, reluctantly, disagreed with Reid’s comments.
“I got blocked, in my back, when you get blocked in your back you fall,” James said. “It’s kind of hard to flop in football, you get hit.”
