His agent, Andy Simms, did not return messages from the Daily News .

Bill O'Brien says he understands how some people feel let down because he left Penn State after only two years as head coach, but he wants them to know that he didn't want to pass up a "once-in-a-lifetime" opportunity presented to him by the Houston Texans. O'Brien was introduced Friday as the Texans' new head coach at a packed news conference inside Reliant Stadium in Houston. And he made sure to reach out to his former players and Penn State fans during his opening remarks. "I want to thank Penn State for the opportunity they gave me to be their head football coach," he said.

With face-painted fans shouting his name, Tony Boselli became the Houston Texans' top pick yesterday - the second time an expansion team began building a franchise around him. "We have a Hall of Famer and we haven't played a game," general manager Charley Casserly said. After five Pro Bowl seasons as an offensive tackle with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Boselli proved to be too attractive for the Texans to pass up, even at a huge cost. Boselli missed most of last season with a shoulder injury that makes him something of a question mark.

Mark Sanchez will remain the New York Jets' starting quarterback despite calls for the team to insert backup Tim Tebow following successive losses. Asked Tuesday on a conference call with reporters if Sanchez will start the Oct. 14 home game against the Indianapolis Colts, coach Rex Ryan responded: "Yes, no question. " Sanchez's 48.4 completion percentage ranks last in the National Football League and is the worst of his four-year professional career. His 208.6 yards passing per game rank him 26th among the league's 32 starting quarterbacks.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Colin Kaepernick threw four touchdown passes in San Francisco's 41-34 win Sunday night over the turnover-prone New England Patriots. Six days after the Patriots' 42-14 win over the Houston Texans, who had the NFL's best record, they were on the other end in another game against one of the league's top teams. Kaepernick, making his fifth start after replacing Alex Smith as San Francisco's starting quarterback, threw scoring passes of 24 yards to Randy Moss, 34 yards to Delanie Walker, and to Michael Crabtree of 27 yards and 38 yards in the fourth quarter to break a 31-all tie. With the win, the 49ers (10-3-1)

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Arian Foster ran for 152 yards and a touchdown as the Houston Texans remained undefeated with a 23-17 win over the New York Jets on Monday night. With a chance to lead the Jets on a winning drive, Mark Sanchez was intercepted by Kareem Jackson on a pass that tipped off the hands of Jeff Cumberland with 1:51 remaining and the Texans (5-0) joined the Atlanta Falcons as the NFL's only teams without a loss. The Jets (2-3) were heavy underdogs after coming off a 34-0 loss to San Francisco last week, but made a game of it. Backup quarterback Tim Tebow got the crowd fired up at times throughout the game, including running for a first down on a fake punt, but had little impact otherwise.

AS WE NEAR the end of the Marcus Mariota watch, with the first round of the NFL draft set for tomorrow evening, a couple of interesting reports about the Eagles have surfaced. The first, from ESPN's Chris Mortensen, alleges that the Eagles and quarterback Sam Bradford are discussing a contract extension, but that Bradford wants a no-trade clause for this season and will not sign an extension with any other team. You have to wonder if that will still be a consideration after tomorrow, since the Eagles are hardly going to look to trade their presumptive starting quarterback during training camp, or after the season starts.

In Chip Kelly's first foray into free agency in 2013, he sought two starting cornerbacks. The Eagles signed Cary Williams and Bradley Fletcher. After releasing Williams last week and with Fletcher's contract expiring, the Eagles are again overhauling the position. They could find at least one - and maybe both - on the free-agent market this week. Free agents can sign with new teams starting on Tuesday, and their agents were allowed to begin talking to teams on Saturday. The Eagles will be armed with around $49.5 million in salary-cap space once the LeSean McCoy trade goes through.

DeMeco Ryans knew the severity of his injury the moment it happened. He did not need an official diagnosis or prognosis from the medical staff to realize the daunting recovery ahead of him. Ryans, the Eagles inside linebacker who was the defensive captain and one of the most respected players on the team, ruptured his right Achilles tendon on Nov. 2 against the Houston Texans. It's the same injury Ryans suffered four seasons earlier and has plagued other players. It came on the same field as the first injury and in just about the same spot.

WHEN JARRETT McClenton was around 7 or 8 years old he was no stranger to great running-back play. Long before he shared Daily News Player of the Year last season, McClenton, now a senior at Archbishop Wood, watched his older brother, Jeff, play football at Conwell-Egan. Jeff was a speedy wideout and safety in his own right, but Steve Slaton was the burner in the backfield. "He could always make the big run because he had breakaway speed," said Jarrett, who is 5-8 and weighs 165 pounds, "but he was also very physical when he ran the ball.

The Eagles placed safety Earl Wolff on injured reserve with a knee injury Tuesday, ending a disappointing season for the 2013 fifth-round pick who has been affected by the injury since the summer. They signed cornerback Roc Carmichael to fill Wolff's roster spot. Wolff, a healthy scratch for the last two games, was not listed on the injury report last week. But he suffered a right knee injury last season and dealt with problems again during training camp. Wolff lost a competition with Nate Allen for a starting spot and has not played to his potential.

One week after starting at safety, Earl Wolff was inactive for the Eagles' win over the Carolina Panthers. Safety Chris Prosinski, who signed last week, played in Wolff's place. Wolff was not on the injury report entering the game, so he was believed to be a healthy scratch. Coach Chip Kelly has offered only lukewarm endorsements this season when asked about Wolff, who could not beat Nate Allen for a starting job during the summer. With Allen injured last week, Wolff struggled in a win over the Houston Texans.

On one of his sacks Monday night - and he had 31/2 of them - Eagles linebacker Connor Barwin shoved Carolina Panthers guard Amini Silatolu with such force that Silatolu tumbled to the turf like a bale of hay. Then Barwin tackled Cam Newton, as if tackling the opposing quarterback were an afterthought compared to flattening an opposing offensive lineman. Later, on another of his sacks, Barwin bull-rushed tackle Nate Chandler and - while Chandler was lying on his back, resembling a just-flipped turtle - hurdled him to grab Newton by the ankle.
