Andre Brown released by Houston Texans

Andre Brown released by Houston Texans

Former Giants running back was expected to be No. 2 in Houston, but apparently fell out of favor. Andre Brown, who led the New York Giants in rushing last season, was released on Monday by the Houston Texans. Brown, buried on the Houston depth chart, did not play over the weekend in Houston's preseason opener. When Brown signed with the Texans this offseason it was assumed that he would be the backup to Arian Foster. Prior to news of his release, the folks at SB Nation's Texans web site, Battle Red Blog, seemed surprised by Brown's fall. Brown was drafted by the Giants in 2009. He has had...

Texans release three running backs

Grimes and Blue will backup Foster The Texans have released running backs Andre Brown, Dennis Johnson and Tim Cornett. Brown, 27, was expected to be Arian Foster's backup this season. Cornett attended North Shore High School and was a longshot to make the team. (Houston Chronicle) FF Today's Take: Jonathan Grimes and rookie Alfred Blue passed Brown on the depth chart during camp and become the immediate backups to Foster. Grimies rushed for 73 yards, 1 TD and hauled in 6 catches for 76 yards in two games last season.

Houston Texans Work Out Three Running Backs; What Does That Mean For Andre Brown?

Houston Texans Work Out Three Running Backs; What Does That Mean For Andre Brown?

Seemingly signed to be Arian Foster's primary backup at running back, Andre Brown didn't even see the field in the Texans' preseason opener. Now the team is looking at other veteran RBs. Is the writing on the wall for Brown? See what he had to say about the situation. When the Texans signed Andre Brown back in April, many of us assumed the team had found a cheap, veteran replacement for Ben Tate to serve as Arian Foster's primary backup. Throughout his career, Brown has had a hard time staying on the field, but for the veteran's minimum, why not take a calculated risk? Then a funny...

Andre Brown Not No. 2 RB For Texans

According to Tania Ganguli of ESPN.com, Texans coach Bill O'Brien said Andre Brown didn't play in the first preseason game because the team ran so few offensive plays.Fantasy Spin:The Texans had just 41 plays and lost 32-0 to the Cardinals. O'Brien said the plan was to play Jonathan Grimes, Alfred Blue and Dennis Johnson, in that order. It's unclear if Brown is behind them on the depth chart or if the Texans already know what they have in him and wanted to see the other backs. With injury-prone Arian Foster on top of the depth chart, we'll continue to monitor the situation to see who emerges...

RB Andre Brown was caught in numbers game vs. Cardinals

Veteran running back Andre Brown never played against the Arizona Cardinals in Saturday night’s preseason-opening loss, but first-year head coach Bill O’Brien explained that away simply. The Texans weren’t on offense enough to give him a chance, running just 41 offensive plays. “Not an excuse – that’s a terrible offensive performance,” O’Brien said. “We had […]
