Reyes lands in Kansas City just two weeks after being released from Washington. In two games this season he recorded five tackles but now has an opportunity to see increased action with his new team. The Chiefs are dealing with several injuries on the defensive line, so expect Reyes to compete with Rakeem Nunez-Roches and Chris Jones for a starting position once he learns the playbook.
Reyes was brought in to workout for the Texans on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Houston is getting a look at bodies on the defensive line after losing J.J. Watt (back) and Devon Still (undisclosed) to injury. Reyes left town without immediately signing a contract. He's a former second-round pick (2012) of the Chargers, who last played for Washington and has 126 career tackles, 13.5 sacks and one interception.
Reyes was released by the Redskins on Wednesday, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.
Reyes signed with the Redskins in the spring and was the presumed starter entering training camp, but he lost that position and had since seen his playing time steadily drop off.
Reyes missed the team's last two games with a groin injury but returned to practice on a limited basis each day this week. Now healthy enough to play, he'll provide Washington with depth on the defensive line.
Currently tending to a groin injury, Reyes has not practiced in any capacity since last Wednesday. It's unclear when he'll be ready to take the field again.
