Texans Elevate RB C.J. Prosise

With David Johnson sidelined with a concussion, the Texans are turning to a notable name from their practice squad. Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports that Houston is promoting running back C.J. Prosise.

Prosise, a former third-round pick out of Notre Dame, became a free agent following four seasons with the Seahawks. After auditioning for the Lions and Bears, the 26-year-old secured a practice squad gig with the Texans back in early September. Prosise was elevated to the active roster twice that month, and after being signed to the active roster in late September, he was subsequently waived in late October.

In six games for Houston this season, Prosise has only seen five offensive snaps (vs. 71 special teams snaps). The veteran previously saw time in 25 regular season games during his time in Seattle, rushing for 264 yards and two scores on 65 carries. He had another 36 receptions for 393 yards.

Johnson exited the Texans’ win over the Jaguars last weekend after being on the receiving end of a big hit from Jacksonville linebacker Myles Jack. Backup Duke Johnson proceeded to collect a career-high 20 carries, and he’ll likely lead the rushing attack against the Browns tomorrow. Houston is also rostering running back Buddy Howell.

Texans Work Out Prosise, Halapio, Others

The Texans are looking into some veteran free agents. Running back C.J. Prosise, wide receiver Ryan Grant, quarterback Cody Kessler and center Jon Halapio were among the players who participated in a Texans workout Wednesday.

This marks Prosise’s second August workout; he auditioned for the Lions nearly two weeks ago. The former Seahawks running back showed promise as a rookie and remained with the team throughout his four-year rookie contract, but the former third-round pick could never carve out a consistent role.

Now 30, Grant has bounced around since his Washington run ended. The nixed Ravens agreement in 2018 ended up routing him to the Colts, with whom he saw his last significant game action. Grant caught 35 passes for 334 yards in 2018. The Texans have a veteran-heavy receiving corps — headlined by the Will FullerBrandin CooksRandall CobbKenny Stills quartet — but are down Keke Coutee at the moment. The third-year wideout is batting a foot stress fracture.

The Patriots carried Kessler for part of last season but released him in April. He has not seen game action since starting four games for the 2018 Jaguars.

Halapio brings the most recent starting experience, having been the Giants’ starting center for 15 games in 2019. He was rumored as a player who could return to the Giants, but nothing has emerged on that front in a bit. The Giants non-tendered him as an RFA in March. Halapio, 29, entered the past two seasons as New York’s starting center, but a broken leg ended his 2018 slate early and an Achilles’ tendon tear knocked him out of a Week 17 game last season.
