Houston Texans: Brandon Dunn signed, Josh Lenz added to practice squad


The Houston Texans decided to add some depth to their defensive line rotation by signing defensive tackle Brandon Dunn away from the Chicago Bears practice squad.

Dunn was undrafted out of Louisville and has only appeared in four games so far in his career. During his rookie campaign of 2014 he recorded one tackle in three games played. In just one game this season he registered two tackles.

The 6’2″, 300-pound tackle adds some depth with great size that will allow him to fit nicely in the Texans 3-4 system run by defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel.

To make room for Dunn, the team waived undrafted rookie receiver and return man Chandler Worthy. The undersized player from Troy showed off blazing speed during training camp but never saw that translate to the field.

With three games played Worthy recorded three receptions for 14 yards, an average of only 4.7 yards per reception. He was supposed to make a difference in the return game, but managed only three punt returns for nine yards and one kickoff return for 27.

The team may be looking to move on from Worthy all together as they also added receiver Josh Lenz to their practice squad. Lenz was also undrafted and the Iowa State product has yet to see any NFL action despite stints with Chicago, Seattle, Indianapolis and Cleveland.

To make room on the squad for Lenz, the team parted with offensive lineman Edawn Coughman.
