The Houston Texans have been busy trying to improve their roster in an attempt to make a playoff run.
The Houston Texans have been making a lot of roster moves over the past couple of days.
On Monday, it was reported that the Texans are promoting wide receiver Cobi Hamilton by adding him to their 53-man roster from their practice squad.

Then on Tuesday is was reported that the Texans put in a claim for defensive tackle Sheldon Day after the Jacksonville Jaguars released him. Unfortunately, he ended up with the San Francisco 49ers, since they’re higher on the waiver wire priority list. Houston did however sign running back Troymaine Pope to their practice squad.
On top of that the Texans were awarded former Arizona Cardinals running back Andre Ellington off of waivers, after he was recently released.
News has also come out that the Texans have released quarterback Josh Johnson. He’s been serving as their third string quarterback with T.J. Yates and of course Tom Savage ahead of him.
Houston only had two quarterbacks on their roster until rookie Deshaun Watson went down with a torn ACL. Then they decided to sign two back-ups. Now they’re back down to two quarterbacks on their active roster with Johnson being released.
With Kevin Johnson in the concussion protocol, the Texans worked out free agent defensive backs Chykie Brown and Adairus Barnes on Tuesday.
Brown is 30 years-old and last played with the Cincinnati Bengals last year. He’s also spent time with the Baltimore Ravens and New York Giants. He was a 5th round pick of the Ravens in 2011 out of the University of Texas.
Barnes is 23 years-old and went undrafted in 2016 out of Louisiana Tech. He was then signed by the Detroit Lions and was on their roster until he was waived on September 2nd.
