During the NFL week, Tuesday night and Wednesday morning are typically when roster moves are made. Teams readjust from the prior week, update their depth chart, deal with injuries, bump players up and down the practice squad, or sign other guys. This week in preparation for staving off 0-3 and playing New York (G), the Texans signed Isaac Whitney to their practice squad.

Whitney is a former Oakland Raiders wide receiver who is now hanging out in Houston. He wasn’t the only player Houston looked into. The Texans also brought in running backs Matthew Dayes and Jeremy McNichols, defensive end Anthony Lanier, and cornerbacks Herb Waters and D.J. White in for a workout, which is, of course, something Aaron Wilson reported last night.

That’s it so far. I wouldn’t be surprised if someone from the practice squad is released to make this move.
There still isn’t any new injury news this week. We’ll re-post anything on Jadeveon Clowney, Kevin Johnson, or anyone else who is bumped and bruised later this week.
UPDATE: Here’s your corresponding move to allow Whitney to join the taxi squad.
