Early years[edit]

NFL career[edit]

It was announced on August 29, 2006, that Texans running back Domanick Davis would be unable to start the team's first regular season game due to a lingering knee injury. Houston Head Coach Gary Kubiak stated that Lundy would start the first game of his rookie campaign in Davis's place. Lundy stepped up for 476 yards and 4 touchdowns in his rookie season.[1] On August 31, 2007 the Texans released him.

In a 2004 interview with Sports Illustrated, Lundy suggested he would aspire to be a rap artist if football didn't work out.[2] In 2010, he partnered with producer Jase Harley and established a collective called Fresh Fuzion.[3][4]
