Houston Texans make roster moves with training camp set to kick off
The Texans made some roster moves on the eve of training camp kicking off.
The Houston Texans will officially have their first training camp practice on Wednesday.
But on Tuesday, the Texans announced that they’ve made four roster moves.
Houston placed left tackle Duane Brown on the reserve/did not report list as he continues to hold out for more money.
The Texans also placed defensive end T.J. Daniel on the physically unable to perform list, defensive end Joel Heath and outside linebacker Dayon Pratt on the non-football injury list.
When it comes to Brown, he will be fined $40K for every day of training camp that he misses. And if for some reason he continues his hold out into the regular season he will not receive his game checks.
Both Heath and Pratt suffered injuries while training on their own this offseason and will keep working their way back.
Daniel will not count as a roster spot right now and will be able to come off of the PUP list at anytime before the regular season kicks off.

Once the preseason ends, the Texans will need to decide whether or not they keep Daniel on the PUP list. If they do, he’ll have to miss the first six weeks of the regular season.
There’s no doubt that the roster move that will most negatively affect the Texans is Brown not showing up and deciding to continue his hold out.
On the bright side, Houston will have a chance to get a good luck at their back up tackles with Brown sitting out.
