Re: Mike Bell is now a Texan
And the Chronic's take on it:
With concerns still surrounding the back injury to Chris Brown, the Texans signed former Broncos running back Mike Bell on Thursday.
Bell is well-versed on the zone-blocking scheme the Texans are implementing this offseason.
He is a third-year back who saw his most success as a rookie in 2006 in Denver. He posted the fourth-most rushing yards (677) and tied for the second-most rushing touchdowns (8) by an undrafted NFL rookie since the inception of the common draft in 1967. Bell battled injuries in 2007 and saw little playing time.
The 6-0, 225 pounder was released by the Broncos this offseason when he struggled as the team tried to move him to fullback.
To make room on the roster for Bell, the Texans released safety Brandon Harrison.
Chris Brown missed his fourth day of practice because of back problems Thursday. Kubiak said his return could still be two more days away.
