The Texans re-signed slot receiver Damaris Johnson, a restricted free agent, to a one-year, $1 million deal, reports ESPN's Adam Caplan. He caught 31 passes for 331 yards and a touchdown and also served as a punt and kickoff returner.
Running back Jonathan Grimes led a trio of Texans making minor contributions to a critical win Sunday in Cleveland. Grimes pitched in with 54 yards on 13 carries to help his team. Also chipping in was wide receiver Damaris Johnson with five catches for 21 yards, as well as one run for six yards, and fellow wideout Keshawn Martin, who caught one passes for two yards.
The Texans didn't get much support from their bit players Sunday against Philadelphia. Leading the way among those players was running back Alfred Blue with 13 yards on seven carries and one catch for minus-3 yards, as well as wide receiver Damaris Johnson with two catches for 16 yards.
The Texans got contributions from several role players in Monday's 30-23 loss at Pittsburgh. Backup running back Alfred Blue ran five times for 14 yards and took a dumpoff pass 11 yards for his first career touchdown. Tight end Garrett Graham caught two of three targets for 24 yards, and wideout Damaris Johnson had a 15-yard reception and a bad drop. Tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz hauled in a 9-yard pass, while receiver Keshawn Martin added a 5-yard grab. They'll all visit the Titans in Week 8.
The Texans backup pass catchers didn't do much Week 6. Damaris Johnson actually did play a big impact, finishing with 62 yards on three receptions. He caught every pass thrown his way. Johnson's 62 yards was good for second on the team. Tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz also contributed, catching one pass for 7 yards. Garrett Graham was targeted one time, but did not come up with a reception. They'll take on the Steelers Week 7.
