Default Charles Spencer/Abbate/Powell Waived

Adam Caplan from Scout.com (BattleRedNation.com) is reporting the Houston Texans have waived OL Charles Spencer.

Spencer, who was drafted in the third round in 2006, hasn't played since the second game of his rookie season after suffering a broken leg and damage to his knee. However, he made significant progress over the past several months and the feeling was that he was close to being able to play.

The former University of Pittsburgh offensive lineman should receive a decent amount of attention from other teams because of his ability to play guard and tackle.

Best wishes Big Nasty! Thank you for all the hopes you gave us.

I wonder if he could "clear waivers" and come back on the PS.

After a quick look around, I can't find a link verifying this. This would not make sense, well to me at least, why not just put him on the PUP, that would give him another couple months to rehab or is he just too close to coming back to be medically eliglible for the PUP list? If so, what about the PS?

I'm sorry to hear he didn't work out for us. I hope he makes it somewhere else.

Texans are now confirming as well:

Nick Scurfield "And, to confirm BattleRedNation's post, Charles Spencer has been released along with fullback Jon Abbate and defensive tackle Eric Powell."

It's official. Good luck Charles, you didn't deserve the Dayne train, to think what could have been.

Will the Texans need to make another cut when Brown is signed?

Yes, right now we are at 80. When he signs, it will be 81.

With Abbate gone, that leaves only 2 FBs to get through camp. I hope these guys are ready. Maybe Ryan Krause can take some snaps at FB?

Goodluck to Charles Spencer. For the short time he did play for us he showed that he had a lot of potential. Hopefully he'll get another chance.

I am sort of surprised to see this happen.
I feel like the Texans have players with significant injuries that they let rehab and get extremely close, then release.

Why keep them so long if we are just going to release them prior to them being back in football shape?

A big high for me when he signed with the prospect of being our LT and then a huge crash. I realize it effected him more, but I really wished he could have come back. Talk about an Oline. I hope we get better news on DRob.

Im seriously starting to doubt Drob. Name me one Texans player that suffered a significant (more than 1 season long) injury that has come back to play a significant role?
