Houston Texans Roster News: Texans Sign Mike Adams, Release Austin Exford, Plus Injury Updates

Roster maintenance after the Carolina debacle.

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Carolina Panthers Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

The Texans lost 16-10 at home to Carolina. This week they play the Atlanta Falcons in Week Five. The Texans made a few roster moves to maintain their personnel before Matt Ryan & Co. come to town.

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.

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.
