HOUSTON (AP) -- T.J. Yates led kids on a shopping spree around a sporting goods store this week as a pack of cameramen recorded his every move. Nearby, at the Houston Texans' merchandise store, patrons asked clerks when the "Yates" jerseys would hit the racks.
Fans began chanting "T.J.! T.J.!" during the team's last home game, and the Texans have been inundated with interview requests for Yates and even his parents.
Never mind Tim Tebow. It's T.J.'s time in Houston.
Pressed into action following injuries to Matt Schaub and Matt Leinart, Yates led the Texans to their first postseason berth last week.
