Houston Texans Release Bruce Ellington

New, comments

From Injured Reserve to the open market.

NFL: San Francisco 49ers at Houston Texans
So long, Bruce.
Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

A little more than a month after they placed him on Injured Reserve, your Houston Texans have removed Bruce Ellington from IR...to cut him.

As it pertains to the numbers game at wide receiver, this shouldn’t come as a big surprise in the wake of the Demaryius Thomas trade. It also could mean the Texans feel good about Keke Coutee’s progress as he attempts to return from a hamstring injury of his own.

Best wishes to Bruce as he looks to continue his NFL career elsewhere.
