Houston Chronicle - - PRO FOOTBALL - Aaron Wil­son

Tex­ans of­fen­sive guard

Greg Mancz is a valu­able enough backup that the team signed him a twoyear, $7.913 mil­lion con­tract ex­ten­sion this year.

Mancz started ev­ery game at cen­ter two sea­sons ago, when cen­ter

Nick Martin was placed on in­jured re­serve.

Now, Mancz is pre­par­ing to start again at right guard Sun­day against the Colts and has prac­ticed with the first-team of­fense all week. Start­ing guard

Zach Ful­ton has a hand in­jury and was of­fi­cially ruled out Fri­day.

“Yeah, he’s done that many times for us,” coach

Bill O’Brien said of Mancz, who has started three of 12 games. “He’s played a bunch for us this year. He’s played re­ally well for us.”
