First, the Texans signed 38 year old safety Mike Adams. Why? You’d have to ask the Texans. They already have Tashaun Gipson, Eric Reid, and Jahleel Addae. I don’t know what Adams will do here, but he’s here.
The Texans then released preseason darling safety Austin Exford from the practice squad after this decision and added Jonathan Owens.

And the Texans worked out former Rams offensive lineman Brandon Hitner.

Most importantly, here’s an injury update. Charles Omenihu and Tytus Howard are supposedly good to go this week.
Texans offensive tackle Tytus Howard left the game Sunday for one play to get his elbow checked out. Looked much worse than it was, hit his funny bone. 'I'm fine,' Howard said today. 'I'm good to go.'— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) September 30, 2019
Keke Coutee is healthy, but Kenny Stills is out with a hamstring injury; there isn’t a timetable on his return. Zach Fulton could have played last week, as it sounds like it was a minor back injury that kept Fulton off the field last week. And, finally, Senio Kelemete had wrist surgery to correct the same body part that put him on the injured reserve list to begin with. It sounds like the surgery was a success.
That’s it. The Texans’ roster looks to be all set as they prepare for Atlanta.
