Jack Easterby is currently sitting at his computer, making phone calls, and handling the Houston Texans’ roster. This is a big moment for him. He made his first real moves last week. Hopefully this is just a bizarre blip in the franchise’s history and not a course set for future action.
The Texans released practice squad running back C.J. Prosise. Prosise, if you remember, once drank some coffee with the Seattle Seahawks. With Prosise gone, the decision was made to bring defensive tackle Eli Ankou up to the active roster. Ankou is a defensive tackle who can steal snaps away from Carlos Watkins, Brandon Dunn, Charles Omenihu, and even P.J. Hall. All have been terrible against the run, but at least Hall is boom-or-bust instead of just bust.

There’s also some injury news too this week. Bradley Roby’s knee injury, which set up the environment for Davante Adams to have 196 yards instead of 125 yards for the Packers two days ago, is nothing serious. Jordan Akins is set to return from his concussion and ankle injury after the bye. Kahale Warring, who was too HOT for Bill O’Brien to handle, is expected to be out until at least Week nNne. I hope to see Warring at least once this year.

In the meantime, Easterby is going to be fielding phone calls about who’s available on the 1-6 Texans as the NFL inches closer to the trade deadline on November 3rd.
