1. Kahale Warring, TE

Here is another crowded depth chart for the Houston Texans, and that includes former third-round pick Kahale Warring, because the tight end missed his entire rookie season due to a hamstring injury and then a concussion.

Warring really needed to play games in the preseason for the 2020 season because like the Texans at wide receiver, the tight end depth chart has talented players and veterans wanting to make the team as well.

How many tight ends will the Texans keep in 2020 … three to four, so that leaves Warring in a position battle with Darren Fells, Jordan Akins and Jordan Thomas, with the two Jordans also being past draft choices of head coach Bill O’Brien and the Texans.

Warring was placed on the season-ending IR on Sept. 2 last year and didn’t play a regular-season snap, so losing the preseason must be devastating for him. Losing snaps against some quality opponents might have been more important to him compared to most players on the Houston Texans roster.

dark. Next. Are the Texans better than 16th on the defensive line?

Time will tell how much losing the preseason hurts Warring, but snaps in an in-game experience against opponents who aren’t teammates would have made a big difference for Warring and his hopes of earning a solid roster spot in the battle of tight ends that Texans have this training camp.
