Houston Texans: Zach Boren
Defensive end Keith Browner and cornerback Roc Carmichael returned to the Texans. Carmichael spent last season on the Texans' 53-man roster, but was usually not active for games.
Rookie fullback Zach Boren, receiver Andy Cruse, running back Ray Graham, guard/center Alex Kupper and receiver EZ Nwachukwu returned to the Texans' practice squad after being released. The Texans also added inside linebacker Mike Mohamed, a second-year player out of California.
Three Texans who were cut were claimed off waivers on Sunday -- fullback Tyler Clutts (to Miami), nose tackle Chris Jones (to Tampa Bay), and running back Dennis Johnson (to Cleveland).
It's a nod to a team's talent when it loses more than it gains off the waiver system. By contrast, the Jacksonville Jaguars and Kansas City Chiefs (the first two teams in the waiver order) were awarded seven players each. The Cleveland Browns landed six.
