Due to the ongoing ailments of Duane Brown and Xavier Su'a-Filo, the Texans were forced to start a hodgepodge offensive line against the Panthers last week. Things then went from bad to worse when Jeff Adams sustained a season-ending injury in the midst of the Carolina game, further weakening an already flagging unit.

Not surprisingly, the Texans are scrambling for reinforcements on the offensive line, and that desperation was evident today as the team made a handful of moves. Aaron Wilson reports:

The Texans signed tackle Edawn Coughman to the practice squad and worked out tackle Jesse Davis, according to a league source.

Meanwhile, the Texans cut quarterback Zac Dysert and offensive tackle Joseph Treadwell from the practice squad.

We can debate the shortcomings of Ryan Mallett, Brian Hoyer, and a running attack that's missing Arian Foster until the cows come home, but a decimated offensive line will only continue to hamstring an offense that's searching for any sort of consistency or spark.
