 HOUSTON (AP) - Houston defensive end Antonio Smith is apologizing for using the word ''spying'' about New England, but isn't exactly backing down from the accusations he made after the Texans' loss to the Patriots.
On Sunday after Houston's 34-31 loss, Smith told reporters that the Texans had some new wrinkles in their defense and it was ''miraculous'' how the Patriots changed their offense to key on the defense.
He said then: ''Either teams are spying on us or scouting us. I don't know what it is.''
On Monday, he said that he thought reporters in Houston knew him well enough to know that he could be joking and still be curious about something like this at the same time.
He says: ''I'm sorry I said the word spying because of a prior engagement of them being caught spying before.''
