Probably an extra body with Cushing out:


The Houston Texans signed free agent linebacker Khary Campbell today to bolster their depth on defense and special teams, according to a league source.

Campbell, 30, has recorded 104 career tackles and forced two fumbles in seven NFL seasons.

The 6-foot-2, 224-pounder from Bowling Green appeared in 14 games last season for the Washington Redskins and registered 13 tackles. It was one season removed from a career-high 34 tackles with the Redskins.

Campbell had a previous stint with the New York Jets prior to spending five seasons in Washington.

Per the source, the Texans also auditioned free agent linebackers Alex Lewis and Darrell McClover on Sunday.

Interesting. Training camp bodies or did somebody down at the end of the bench not please the coaches?

They need bodies for camp, and the older guys have a smaller learning curve.
