    Not big news but news none the less. Probably to fill Holliday's spot/camp body.

    Fringe bodies at this point.

    idonno::um::confused: Sorry, makes no sense, even if they cut Holliday. Guess that's why I'm just a lowly fan, who never seems to understand some of the decisions made by our coaching staff. Oh well!

    I don't think they are going to cut Holliday. I think he will be placed on IR.

    He's just a guy to throw on the field for a few weeks and keep the regulars from getting hurt.

    I read this thread before I saw the one where he got put on IR. I still don't understand that move. I'm tired of trying to understand the inner workings of this coaching staff.

    It's either IR, or cut the guy really. The Texans decided that they saw enough out of Holliday to warrant giving him a shot next year so they are going to pay him minimally and keep him off the final 53, as well as keep other teams away from him.

    IR'd players cannot practice with the team at all during the season right?

    Just a fringe player that's not going to make the team.

    Just a body needed to practice something with. All teams do this at this point in the preseason. If you watch the crawl on NFLN, you'll see lots of fringe players getting cut and signed all over the place.
