Of course, the next call for the undrafted free agent from Troy University was to his mother.
“I called her and she was screaming happy for me, it was a great moment in my life,” Worthy said. “I just called and was like, ‘Mom,’ and she was like, ‘What?’ ‘I made the 53,’ and she just started screaming. It was a beautiful moment for me.”
As arguably one of the fastest players on the roster, clocked at 4.3 in the 40, Worthy can certainly provide a boost to the Texans hardships in the return game.
The Texans and Head Coach, Bill O'Brien envision a versatile role for Worthy. “He can do a lot of different things,” O’Brien said. “You bring up the speed and that’s a big factor. He’s got good hands. He’s a tough kid."
"He’s helped us on special teams, he can play receiver, he can play running back, he can play quarterback. So, he can do a lot of different things for us so we’ll see what he can do in this game.”
O'Brien is very optimistic of Worthy's talent and potential. "He’s helped us on special teams, he can play receiver, he can play running back, he can play quarterback. So, he can do a lot of different things for us so we’ll see what he can do in this game.”
The Alpha Tau Omega alum spoke with humility to TEN 4 Enterprises saying, "I'm thankful for even getting the opportunity," and that "to God [he] gives all the praise."
“Mainly just speed, giving the team that speed element,” Worthy said when asked what he hoped to contribute. “That’s what I have to my advantage. I’m definitely trying to use it as much as I can.”
Although Worthy isn't sure if he’ll be the returner Sunday, he's more than ready.
"I’m an optimist so we’re going to see. I hope so. I’ve been playing that first play in my head since I was six years old. I’m just ready to get out there and excited about all of that.”
