Todman is dealing with a calf injury and was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns. Todman did not practice this week so this is expected. The 27-year-old signed with the Texans in late August but has played exclusively on special teams, and he would likely need multiple injuries at the running back position before seeing offensive opportunities.
Todman will sign with the Texans, John McCain of the Houston Chronicle reports. Todman is an effective kick returner but hasn't been anything more than a depth running back in the pros. The 2011 sixth-rounder will compete for slotting behind starter Lamar Miller and Alfred Blue and rookie D'Onta Foreman.
Todman was waived by the Jets on Wednesday. Todman was among a crowded group at running back, and figured to have a long shot at landing on the final roster. The 27-year-old will look to make an impression elsewhere.
Todman gained one yard on his lone carry during Saturday's preseason loss to Lions. Despite only receiving one carry, Todman was on the field for 22 percent of the team's offensive snaps. It's still too early to say whether or not he'll make the 53-man roster, but unless he shines bright over the next two preseason contests, things are looking somewhat bleak at the moment.
Todman will sign a contract with the Jets, Adam Caplan of NFL.com reports. Todman spent the 2016 season in Indianapolis, taking over as the Colts' primary kick returner after Quan Bray landed on injured reserve. Though he'll offer a depth option at running back, Todman will probably need to shine on special teams during training camp in order to make the Jets' 53-man roster. With projected return man Jalin Marshall (suspension) set to miss the first four games of the regular season, Todman should have a decent opportunity to prove himself in preseason contests.
