As aj stated earlier in the thread, there isn't any extra cap space if Green is active over the course of the season. If Green can't stay on the field, the team could release him and realize some cap savings. If so, that money could be used on a replacement at RB.
As far as an impending pickup goes, the Texans are flexible enough under the cap to make a move now. According to Keith's salary cap page
, at inthebullseye.com, the Texans are about $8 million under prior to Green's restructure. Whether Green had or hadn't restructured, the Texans could bring on a big salary. If the situation presents itself.
