The Houston Texans made some minor transactions.

The Texans have made some minor roster adjustments, little blips done to smooth out the roster before their first preseason game. Houston moved Dayon Pratt, a 6’4”, 240 lb. rookie outside linebacker from East Carolina to the active roster. They waived T.J. Daniel, a 6’6”, 280 lb. rookie defensive end from Oregon. And they moved DeAnte Gray, a 5’10”, 185 pound rookie wide receiver from TCU to the reserve/injured list.

Additionally, the team recently released an unofficial depth chart.

This gleams a few interesting things. Kendall Lamm is the starting right tackle, with Chris Clark subbing in for the disgruntled Duane Brown. Houston is still showing their base defense as a 3-4 with Jadeveon Clowney as an outside linebacker, not a defensive end. Kareem Jackson is still playing cornerback, with Corey Moore listed as the starting strong safety. Oh, and everyone’s favorite face-catching kick returner, Tyler Ervin, is still back there.

In case you forgot, the Texans begin the preseason against the Carolina Panthers Wednesday, August 9th at 6:30 p.m. CDT.
