Texans Roster: Houston Adds Case Keenum, 6 Others To Practice Squad

On Friday the Houston Texans cut down their roster to 53 players, and now the attention has been turned to who the Texans will add to their practice squad.

Eight players are the maximum that a team can have on their practice squad, and the Texans have so far filled seven of those spots. All seven players were previously on the Texans.

Practice squad members:
1. QB Case Keenum
2. RB Johnathan Grimes
3. WR Jeff Maehl
4. TE Phillip Supernaw
5. DT David Hunter
6. OLB Delano Johnson
7. S Eddie Pleasant

In addition to signing these seven players to the Texans practice squad, they also waived guard Shelley Smith, which will open up another roster spot on the 53-man active roster.

Texans Roster Cuts Include Case Keenum, Eddie Pleasant

Cut down day in the NFL is here and the Houston Texans have announced what players were not part of their 53-man roster. There were 20 players who the Texans either let go or placed on injured reserved in order to get their roster down to size.

Here are the players who are not part of the Texans 53-man roster:

TE Logan Brock
DE Keith Browner
OLB D.J. Bryant
NT Hebron Fangupo
DE David Hunter
WR Juaquin Iglesias
OLB Delano Johnson
QB Case Keenum
DE Mitch King
ILB Shawn Loiseau
WR Jeff Maehl
OLB Rennie Moore
FS Troy Nolan
FB Moran Norris
SS Eddie Pleasant
TE Phillip Supernaw
C Cody Wallace
C Cody White
WR Jerrell Jackson
LT Rashad Butler

By no means is this going to be the team's opening day roster though, as the Texans may make more moves during the waivers process and could even possibly get one of the players they let go on Friday and add them to their practice squad.
