Texans shuffle backs, sign Ward, cut Henry, Johnson wire reports

HOUSTON -- The Houston Texans have signed running back Derrick Ward and released backs Chris Henry and Jeremiah Johnson and quarterback John David Booty.

The Texans announced their final cuts and the acquisition of Ward on Saturday, the deadline for teams to trim their rosters to 53 players.

Ward, released by Tampa Bay on Tuesday, worked out for the Texans on Friday. He rushed for 1,025 yards for the New York Giants in 2008, but only 409 yards for the Buccaneers last season.

Houston placed receiver Andre Davis (hip) on injured reserve and put tight end Anthony Hill on the physically unable to perform list.

Also cut were fullback Jack Corcora; tight end Derek Fine; linebackers Isaiah Greenhouse and Will Patterson; offensive linemen Brett Helms, Steve Maneri, Cole Pemberton, Adam Stenavich and Chris White; receivers Derrick Townsel and Bobby Williams; defensive linemen DelJuan Robinson, Malcolm Sheppard and Mitch Unrein; cornerback Mark Parson and safety Torri Williams.
