Houston Texans Sign RB Chris Ogbonnaya, Six Others To Practice Squad

Per Houston Chronicle writer John McClain, the Houston Texans have signed the following players to their practice squad:

Running Back Chris Ogbonnaya
Wide Receiver Trindon Holliday
Wide Receiver Jeff Maehl
Guard Andrew Gardner
Center Howard Barbieri
Linebacker Mister Alexander
Safety Shiloh Keo

It looks like return specialist Trindon Holliday will get one more chance to make good on that freak speed, while Keo and Maehl will spend a year refining their technique for a legitimate run at a roster spot in 2012. Also, color me surprised that Ogbonnaya cleared waivers.

I imagine that since the Texans also claimed guard Thomas Austin from the New England Patriots that they will waive someone, sign a punter, and that waived player will become the final member of the practice squad. I will throw out the names punter Travis Baltz (who had what Indianapolis fans describe as a good preseason) and cornerback Roc Carmichael. Anyone else want to speculate punters and eighth practice squad member? The comments are yours.
