Default Texans to sign Henry to active roster

I'm told the #Texans will be signing RB Chris Henry off their practice squad.

Texans signing more Tennessee trash to their roster. Do not expect Henry to play(Arian Foster was promoted and has done what and/or has he seen any action? Answer: No). Roster move is going to need to be made unless someone goes to IR(Slaton?)

Henry is pretty good...running in straight lines. His only minor downside is that he isn't very physical and he doesn't break tackles and isn't very good at making tacklers miss.

Question is: Will he see any time? Doubtful. Even Moats has a hard time getting carries despite being productive for the most part while being in there.

Wow this is really depressing.... For all those people clamoring for Arian Foster, this isn't a good sign at all. If Foster can't even beat out Chris Henry then I'm going to have to completely write Foster off as far as future plans go.

Chris Henry sucks.

I think Henry is better than most give him credit for. Why not give the guy a chance before beating him to death with a baseball bat?

The guy isn't Walter Payton, but he's also not had a lot of chances with the great ground game ahead of him in Tennessee. I know one thing - the one time Henry played against the Texans, he absolutely abused us.

Foster was never brought up to the roster to play RB, he was brought up to play special teams and fill in in case of emergency at RB.

So if I understand the situation correctly he's a beast as long as there's nobody else on the field.

I've got hope for the guy. I don't have any choice.

It doesn't get any worse than Chris Brown as our #1.

If Slaton is that bad off, why bring Henry up, if not to replace Moats? Kubiak will not take Chris Brown off the field, there's no reason to replace Foster, so I am assuming he plans on reducing Moats' touches.


Moats must have done something to Kubiak's cheerios.

For the life of me, I can't see why he doesn't like this kid.

This

He did tear up the Texans defense when he got the chance. Not that that is saying much.
