The Houston Texans bringing back inside linebacker Tyrell Adams for the remaining game of the regular season and the start of the playoffs.

The Houston Texans have signed inside linebacker Tyrell Adams from the San Francisco 49ers practice squad. The Texans were looking for a replacement at inside linebacker they placed Brian Peters on the IR for the rest of the season. Adams spent a few weeks on the practice squad before being promoted to the active roster. He played three games for the Texans this season and had two combined tackles.

He made most of his contributions on special teams in his first stint with the team and he is expected to stay in that role with Peters’ season coming to an end. Adams biggest play came against the Buffalo Bills in Week 6  when he blocked a punt in special teams that put the offense in a position to score. Texans PR announced the transactions on their official Twitter account.
