The Texans have so many tight ends on their roster. Hypothetically, there’s no limit to the number you can have. Darren Fells, Kahale Warring, Jordan Thomas, Jordan Akins, and Jerell Adams are all already here. What’s the harm in adding one more? Yesterday the Texans signed Logan Paulsen, a former Atlanta Falcon, to the roster.

After doing so, the Texans also announced they moved Thomas (cracked ribs) and Warring (concussion) to Injured Reserve. This is sad to hear. Thomas was a great red zone presence last season. Warring looked like a steal in the third round of this year’s draft, but now it looks like Warring is going to have a redshirt rookie season.

Houston also signed Wyatt Ray to their practice squad. This is the tenth addition to that unit, so it seems like the end of their practice squad signings for now—if you are into that sort of thing.
So unless I'm missing something, Texans practice squad so far: RB Karan Higdon, S Chris Johnson, WR Vyncint Smith, QB Alex McGough, S Austin Exford, T Rick Leonard, DL Albert Huggins, ILB Tyrell Adams, WR Steven Mitchell Jr— Rivers McCown (@riversmccown) September 1, 2019
That's 9, with some speculation Adams may get on a 53.
The Texans also finished yesterday by bringing in Brandon Marshall for a workout. Nothing has been done yet, but it seems strange for Houston to add another inside linebacker when they have Zach Cunningham, Benardrick McKinney, and Dylan Cole already on the 53-man roster.

That’s it for the Texans’ roster moves as they start preparing for the New Orleans Saints and Monday Night Football.
