The Texans waived or released the following players: running back William Powell, linebackers Terrance Lloyd and Lawrence Sidbury, nose tackles David Hunter and Austin Brown, cornerback Junior Mertile, guard Sam Longo and receivers Joe Adams and Alec Lemon.
The Texans have signed former Panthers receiver Joe Adams to a contract, the Houston Chronicle reports. Originally a fourth-round pick, Adams struck out in Carolina after one season. He last played for the Edmonton Eskimos in the Canadian Football League but was released in April.
The Panthers waived/injured wide receiver Joe Adams (calf) and defensive tackle Frank Kearse (knee) Tuesday. If both players clear waivers, then they will be put on injured reserve.
Panthers receivers Armanti Edwards (hamstring), Domenik Hixon (hamstring) and Joe Adams (calf) are expected to miss Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles, reports the Charlotte Observer. Coach Ron Rivera said Hixon, who's been out a week and a half, won't return for another week.
