Houston Texans signed rookie cornerback Robert Jackson to their 10-man practice squad.

The Houston Texans have signed another cornerback to their practice squad after injuries have begun to strike the secondary this season.

Kevin Johnson, Aaron Colvin and Kayvon Webster are all cornerbacks that have struggled with their health since making the initial 53-man roster, but the Texans were able to sign Robert Jackson this week to the practice squad. The Texans still have to make a subsequent roster move since all 10 spots on the practice squad are currently occupied.

Aaron Wilson from the Houston Chronicle reported that the Houston Texans worked several players before opting to sign Jackson after a good workout.

Jackson played college football at UNLV before going undrafted in the 2018 NFL Draft. He was with Indianapolis Colts before being waived prior to the start of the regular season.

The Texans have already promoted three players from their practice squad since the start of the regular season. The Texans promoted inside linebacker Tyrell Adams to their active 53-man roster over the weekend due to the number of injuries that have accumulated at that position. Offensive tackles David Sharpe and Roderick Johnson were signed to the active roster, but Johnson was released to make room for Tyrell Adams.

Texans general manager Brian Gaine and the front office will continue to tweak the practice squad roster to find possible candidates for the active roster.
