Default Texans add two

The Houston Texans have placed LB Wali Rainer on the Reserve/Injured list after he suffered a fractured ankle during Sunday morning practice at Texans training camp. To fill Rainer’s spot on the roster, the Texans have signed veteran LB Saleem Rasheed.

Rasheed (6-2, 229), enters his fifth year in the NFL. He was originally drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the fourth round of the 2002 draft from the University of Alabama .

Rasheed spent his entire career with the Niners, playing in 45 games, starting five. He has 26 career tackles and one career sack. Texans defensive coordinator Richard Smith was Rasheed’s linebacker coach in 2002.

The Texans also signed CB Kevin Garrett.

Garrett (5-10, 194) hails from Brazoria , Texas . He was drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the fifth round of the 2003 draft out of Southern Methodist University. He played in 23 career games, starting one for the Rams from 2003-04. He has eight career tackles and four passes defensed. He was most recently with the Kansas City Chiefs.

In order to make room on the roster, the Texans have released C Kelvin Chaisson.

If Richard Smith was Rasheed's LB coach, he should know a ton about the guy.

Hey Kevin Garrett, welcome to the Texans. If you can cover up Andre we might put you on the practice squad...

I know the LB in name only, but the kid from SMU I do remember. I was actually high on him as a sleeper type in 2003. If I remember, he was a Chris Mckenzie clone. Doesn't have ideal size, but is fast as a hiccup. Or at least, that's what I remember. Of course, he couldn't have been doing too well or he would not be available.

It seems as though we lose a player everyday. Mathis, Faggins, Lundy, Rainer. DD cant make is through practice without a knee drain. Knock on wood we dont lose anymore players. We have to win games this year. If not I am going to have to get on prozac and a lot of it.

I think the madden ratings are fairly accurate. On madden I took miller and trader for putizer and I got flanagan and Moulds. The offense went up to 87 overall. Then I started a season. I also fired capers and hired Kubes. Needless to say we won three championships in a row.

I'm not trying to dog anyone or anything, I just don't see how someone can take a rating from a video game for a certain player and gauge that player's performance or potential based on the rating. I know research is probably done to get these ratings, but I don't want to see a Madden rating, I want to see what the guy can do on the field.
