Means and the Eagles agreed to a one-year contract extension on Wednesday. Means played eight games with the Eagles last season. His extension this close to final roster cuts seems to indicate he will make the team. He projects to add depth on the line entering the season.
Means (illness) was a full participant at Saturday's practice, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. There was some concern that Means' game status might be affected by an illness he had been suffering from, but it looks like he will be good to go against the Packers on Monday.
Means has been added to Houston's practice squad, the Houston Chronicle reports. The Texans project Means as an outside linebacker in their 3-4 scheme. He played 11 games for Tampa Bay in 2012 and 2013 and has six career tackles after being drafted in the fifth round of the 2012 draft. He was most recently with Baltimore, who released him late in September.
The Ravens announced Tuesday they have placed four players on the season-ending injury reserve list, including safety Matt Elam, per a team release. Elam tore his bicep on the first day the team put on pads in camp, so his designation to the injury list is not a surprise. In addition to Elam, cornerback Chris Greenwood, linebacker Steve Means and tight end Allen Reisner are sidelined for the season.
The Ravens have declared the following players as inactive for Saturday's divisional round game against the Patriots: Chris Greenwood, Steven Means, Terrence Cody, Ryan Jensen, Casey Walker, Phillip Supernaw and DeAngelo Tyson.
