Per Nick Scurfield, the Houston Texans have signed DE Chris McCoy to the practice squad. McCoy, from Middle Tennessee State, was drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the 7th round of the 2010 NFL Draft.
McCoy, who is listed as 6'3'' and 261 pounds, is oft-described in draft profiles as a raw, athletic talent. During his senior season, McCoy had 20 tackles for a loss, seven sacks, and was voted the Sun Belt Conference's Co-Defensive Player of the Year by the league's coaches and media.
