HOUSTON (AP) -- Zac Diles played in 11 games for the Houston
Texans last year, and coach Gary Kubiak says he should have played
him more.
The 6-foot, 240-pound linebacker from Kansas State is playing
with the starters during offseason practices.
Diles was a seventh-round draft pick last summer, and he says
he's got his opportunity now and has to take advantage of it.
Diles backed up All-Pro DeMeco Ryans in 2007 and also played on
special teams.
When Danny Clark and Charlie Anderson signed with other teams
this year, Diles moved into a starting role at outside linebacker
-- next to Ryans.
Diles played two seasons at Fresno City College. He transferred
to Kansas State and started all 12 games as a senior, ranking
eighth in the Big 12 with 92 tackles.
