Panthers signed OT Chris Clark, formerly of the Texans.

Soon-to-be 33-year-old Clark has made 53 career starts across eight years with the Broncos and Texans. With RT Daryl Williams (knee) headed to I.R. for the Panthers, Clark may be forced into duty rather quickly.

Patriots signed TE Stephen Anderson to the practice squad.

Wouldn't you know it, the Patriots are about to play Anderson's former team Houston. A 2016 UDFA, Anderson had some 2017 fantasy relevance for the Texans' banged up tight end group, catching 25 passes for 342 yards. He will probably end up making regular season appearances this year, either in New England or elsewhere.

Texans worked out free agent RB Charles Sims.

They also had Akeem Hunt in for a visit. Cut by the Bucs with an injury settlement in late August, Sims is apparently already healthy enough to sign. Thin behind Lamar Miller, Houston would be a good landing spot for him.
Sep 6 - 1:12 PM

Texans waived/released QB Joe Webb, OLB Davin Bellamy, WR Quan Bray, S Ibraheim Campbell, CB Andrew Chachere, RB Lavon Coleman, OG Anthony Coyle, S Treston Decoud, OG Kyle Fuller, OG Mason Gentry, ILB Kennan Gilchrist, OT Roderick Johnson, CB Bryce Jones, OT Jaryd Jones-Smith, OLB Ufomba Kamalu, ILB Josh Keyes, NT Darius Kilgo, TE Matt Lengel, S Corey Moore, NT Kingsley Opara, OG David Quessenberry, K Nick Rose, OG Chad Slade, RB Terry Swanson, DE Nick Thurman, CB Dee Virgin, and WR Jester Weah.

Houston also waived/injured TE Jevoni Robinson to get down to the 53-man limit. A versatile backup who can help out on special teams, Webb could latch on somewhere else.
Sep 1 - 3:21 PM

Texans waived OT Roderick Johnson.

The No. 160 overall pick of last year's draft by the Browns, Johnson lasted two months in Houston. He would do well to crack someone's practice squad.
Aug 31 - 4:11 PM

Texans released FB Jay Prosch.

The NFL has mostly done away with fullbacks in recent years but Prosch's release is still a mild surprise after he agreed to a three-year, $5.75 million extension last summer. The 26-year-old nabbed four catches for 31 yards over 148 offensive snaps for Houston last year.
Aug 31 - 2:39 PM

Texans waived WR Braxton Miller.

He got beaten out by Bruce Ellington, and the Texans maintain high hopes for rookie Keke Coutee, even after an injury-ruined preseason. A quarterback at Ohio State, Miller offered Randall Cobb-level athleticism and traits but never mastered the nuances of playing receiver. His future NFL outlook is bleak.
Aug 31 - 1:38 PM

Texans waived TE Stephen Anderson.

Anderson probably saw the writing on the wall when the Texans spent a third-round pick on Jordan Akins. The 25-year-old caught just 25-of-55 targets last season (45.5 percent) while earning poor marks from ProFootballFocus as a run-blocker. Former UConn standout Ryan Griffin figures to open the year as Houston's starting tight end.
Aug 31 - 1:19 PM

Texans waived K Nick Rose.

Rose had a tough summer, converting just one-of-three field goals and four-of-five extra points during the preseason. With Rose out of the picture, place-kicking duties will fall to Ka'imi Fairbairn, who booted 20-of-25 attempts last season with a long of 55 yards.
Aug 31 - 1:10 PM

Texans waived S Treston DeCoud, OG Anthony Coyle, RB Terry Swanson, NT Kinglsey Opara, and CB Andre Chachere.

DeCoud is the only remotely notable name after he was a fifth-round pick last year.
Aug 31 - 12:56 PM

Texans released P Shane Lechler.

Lechler, 42, spent the previous five seasons in Houston after 13 with the Raiders. The move saves the Texans $1.4 million against the cap, but it's possible they bring him back after Week 1 when Lechler's salary won't be guaranteed for the whole season. For now, UDFA Trevor Daniel has the gig.
Aug 31 - 10:29 AM

Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle confirms free agent CB Kayvon Webster will visit the Texans this week.

He also has visits lined up with the Bills and Lions. Webster spent the offseason recovering from a ruptured Achilles but appears to be nearing full strength. Houston has a need at cornerback following Kevin Johnson's concussion, which he suffered in Saturday's preseason game against the 49ers.
Aug 19 - 9:29 AM

Free agent Kayvon Webster is expected to visit teams next week.

Houston, Buffalo, and Detroit all have Webster interest. The Rams made Webster an offseason cap casualty, but he was always expected to resurface when healthy. Webster should settle for close to the veteran minimum.
Aug 18 - 2:31 PM

Texans waived QB Stephen Morris.

A former UDFA out of Miami, Morris has bounced around the league, but he has never shown the ability to stick on a regular-season roster. If he is signed before Week 1, it will only be as a camp arm.
Aug 16 - 9:30 AM

Free agent Ks Giorgio Tavecchio and Nick Rose worked out for the Texans.

Tavecchio was cut by the Raiders earlier this month after making just 16-of-21 field goals last season. He has a big leg but needs to be more accurate. Ka'imi Fairbairn is the Texans' current kicker.
Aug 15 - 2:08 PM

Texans signed WR Quan Bray.

Bray's agency, Universal Sports Management, announced the signing via Twitter. He was the Colts' primary punt returner in the nine games he was healthy for last season, finishing 520 total return yards. He'll serve as special teams depth in Houston.
Aug 12 - 3:43 PM

Texans HC Bill O'Brien said Jadeveon Clowney is still working to get back into football shape.

"When we feel like he’s in football shape, we’ll put him on the field," O'Brien continued. Clowney has participated in some team drills but has done most of his work on the sidelines. The Houston Chronicle recently reported the team remains "confident" he will be ready for Week 1. The Texans would be wise to withhold both Clowney and J.J. Watt from all preseason games to ensure both are ready to go once the regular season begins.
Aug 5 - 4:11 PM

Texans HC Bill O'Brien said RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles, active/PUP) is "heading in the right direction".

Though it's a vague update, it's the first positive note on Foreman's potential availability in Week 1. He remains on the active/PUP list and rehabbing following a torn Achilles suffered last November. Lamar Miller stands to benefit immensely if Foreman is out or limited to start the season.
Aug 4 - 1:12 PM

Texans released OG Jeff Allen with an injury settlement.

He only lasted two years in Houston after landing a four-year, $28 million free agent deal in 2016. Allen was ineffective over 12 starts last season (10 at right guard and two at left tackle), earning PFF's No. 72 grade out of 80 qualifiers at guard. The 28-year-old suffered a concussion at the end of last season and was placed on Houston's reserve/PUP list back in May. With Allen gone, the Texans will move forward with Zach Fulton and Senio Kelemete as their starting guards.
Jul 13 - 4:33 PM

Lamar Miller said he'd be open to the Texans signing free agent Adrian Peterson.

"It would be good to have him join us, just his leadership, seeing the things he’s done in previous years, that I feel like I could probably learn from him," Miller said. "It would help us out as a team." Peterson has talked numerous times about his desire to play for Houston in his home state of Texas. However, the feeling hasn't seemed mutual with the Texans having Miller and D'Onta Foreman on top of recently re-signing Alfred Blue. Peterson is going to have to wait.
