Texans Work Out WR Rashad Greene

Wideout Rashad Greene worked out for the Texans this week, reports Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle (via Twitter). The workout reportedly went well, but a deal isn’t imminent.

After earning a pair of first-team All-ACC nods during his stint with Florida State, Greene was selected by the Jaguars in the fifth round of the 2015 draft. Greene proceeded to play the next four seasons in Jacksonville, including a rookie campaign where he hauled in 19 catches and returned 18 punts. The wideout’s role was reduced in 2016, and he ended up spending the entire 2017 campaign on the injured reserve.

After being released and re-signed prior to the 2018 season, the 26-year-old went on to appear in eight games. He hauled in six catches for 60 yards, but he also had a pair of fumbles on offense, an issue he’s battled since his rookie season. Greene continued to contribute on special teams in 2018, returning seven kicks and punts.

The Texans haven’t added any noteworthy wideouts this offseason, and they watched as veteran Demaryius Thomas left for the Patriots. The team is presumably seeking some additional depth behind their top-three of DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller, and Keke Coutee.

Jaguars Place Rashad Greene On IR, Promote Shane Wynn

The Jaguars have swapped one wideout for another. Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports (via Twitter) that the team has placed receiver Rashad Greene on the injured reserve. The Jaguars have promoted receiver Shane Wynn from the practice squad to take Greene’s place.

Rashad GreeneIt’s been tough for Greene to establish himself on a team with so many talented wideouts. The 2015 fifth-round pick out of Florida State has hauled in 24 career receptions for 125 yards and two touchdowns, although he’s only recorded five receptions this season. Greene has also been the Jaguars primary punt returner over the past two seasons, although he has four fumbles on 21 returns this season. An achilles injury will shut down the 24-year-old for the season, and Greene will be making his second career trip to the injured reserve.

Wynn, 24, has bounced around a bit since going undrafted out of Indiana in 2015. The wideout has yet to play in an NFL game, but he has spent time with the Falcons, Browns, Jets, Chargers, and Saints. Wynn will likely slide into the sixth receiver spot behind Allen RobinsonAllen Hurns, Marqise Lee, Bryan Walters, and Arrelious Benn. The Jaguars could also lean on Wynn to take over punt return duties.

Jaguars Place Sen’Derrick Marks On IR

WEDNESDAY, 3:21pm: The Jaguars officially placed Marks on IR today, one of several roster moves announced by the team. Jacksonville also placed rookie safety James Sample on IR, and used the two open spots to promote safety Craig Loston from the practice squad and to activate wide receiver Rashad Greene from IR-DTR.

TUESDAY, 12:23pm: The Jaguars will place defensive tackle Sen’Derrick Marks on the injured reserve list, ending his season, head coach Gus Bradley confirmed today (Twitter link via John Oehser of Jaguars.com). Marks tore his triceps during Sunday’s win over the Ravens.

Marks, 28, has been one of Jacksonville’s most reliable and productive defenders in recent seasons, but has been plagued by injuries within the last year. At the end of an impressive 2014 campaign that saw him rack up 8.5 sacks, Marks tore his ACL, delaying his 2015 debut. The former second-round pick managed to appear in just four games for the Jags this season before going down with another significant injury.

While the Jaguars got bad news on Marks, another key contributor returned to practice today, according to Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times-Union. Wide receiver Allen Hurns paid another visit to a sports hernia specialist on Monday, but despite battling an abdominal injury and a foot ailment, he looks like a good bet to be active against the Titans this Thursday.

Per Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union (via Twitter), Hurns said today that he may undergo sports hernia surgery after the season. There had been some speculation on Monday that the wideout may need to have such a procedure sooner, sidelining him during the season.
