The end of the waivers period ended at 11am. I don't know how long it will take to announce the players who will make up the PS, but look for some new names along with a few we expect.

Check out the defensive free agents. There are some good veterans that can back up Payne and Walker. Don't ask me who we would cut because I don't know.

Casserly said last night on Channel 13 they would know who they were keeping on the PS by 1:00 today. They were planning on having them at todays practice. Haven't seen anything on it though.

Texans rarely get into a rush on these types of announcements...now those practice spies on the other hand.

Murphey is on the PS, so there's their 3rd TE. Still, I think it sounds encouraging for Joppru.

Yup, that kind of surprised me. The way I read the rules it didn't look like it, but I am not the rules guru. Kind of surprised that Lekkerker didn't get put on it. Must not have looked as good as it was sounding.

This is from the Texans site they signed 8 plyers to the practice squad after they cleared waver.
Quote:
Texans sign 8 to practice squad
HoustonTexans.com

The Houston Texans signed eight players to the practice squad Monday afternoon, seven of which worked with the team through training camp.

Linebackers D.D. Acholonu, Anthony Dunn and Shantee Orr were away from the team for only a few hours, as were defensive back Jammal Lord, defensive end Jason Davis, tight end Matt Murphy and wide receiver Sloan Thomas.

Running back Renaldo Works is the only new addition to the team. Works spent training camp with the Miami Dolphins and rushed for 1,538 yards and 21 touchdowns in four years at Oklahoma.

“Yesterday we met with the players we released and they came in this morning and the waiver wire came through at 11 o’clock.” Texans head coach Dom Capers said. “All the guys we hoped to add to the practice squad we were able to sign.”

I think Orr and Murphy will be moved up and see some action this year.


I think Thomas and Lord will both make the roster next year.

Thanks, that explains it. Didn't clear waivers. To bad, I thought he was probably a good development project.
