Yesterday, it was a practice squad addition at wide receiver. Today, it's a new defensive tackle for the active roster. The Houston Texans have poached Brandon Dunn from the Bears' practice squad. Aaron Wilson reports:

Dunn played in three games for the Bears as a rookie last year, recording three tackles and one pass breakup after going undrafted out of Louisville.

The 6-2, 300-pound Kentucky native started 30 games in four seasons at Louisville where he registered 101 career tackles, three sacks, nine for losses, two fumble recoveries and two pass deflections.

I believe this means the Texans will have to release someone on their current roster to make room for Dunn. Any ideas who it could be?

UPDATE: The identify of the player released to make room for Dunn is now known.
