Texans running back Lamar Miller repeatedly ran into a brick wall at the line of scrimmage Sunday.

The Texans were held to a season-low 53 rushing yards on 22 carries during a loss to the Tennessee Titans as Miller was held to 56 yards on 15 carries.

Miller provided the sole threat in the running game as backup Alfred Blue gained two yards on four carries before suffering a concussion. And third running back Andre Ellington lost four yards on his two carries.

"I think their defensive line did a great job of just getting off their blocks and making plays," Miller said Monday inside the Texans' locker room. "In the second half, we started being more effective in the running game. "

The Texans had just five rushing yards on 10 carries in the first half.

“It wasn’t very good," Texans coach Bill O'Brien said. "We just have to figure out what corrections we need to make, figure out how we can get it better.. We got to do a better job running the ball.”

The Texans miss the presence of rookie running back D'Onta Foreman, who's out for the season with a torn Achilles tendon.

"I think all of the running backs have been doing a great job," Miller said. "I have confidence in all of those guys. We've got to do a better job of being more balanced."
