Hansen (undisclosed) signed to the Texans' practice squad on Sunday after having been waived during roster cuts, Tadd Haislop of SportingNews.com reports. Hansen suffered an undisclosed injury during a scrimmage late August, but he looks to have put the issue behind him. The 25-year-old hasn't suited up for regular-season action since appearing in 15 games with the Jets in 2017.
Hansen (undisclosed) suffered an injury during the Texans' scrimmage Thursday. Head coach Bill O'Brien didn't offer much in the way of an update on Hansen's status but said he will have more information on the injury tomorrow. The wideout took a hard hit from cornerback Lonnie Johnson Jr. Hansen is competing for a reserve and special-teams role after bouncing around the league the past couple of years.
Hansen signed a reserve/future contract with the Texans on Monday. Hansen joined Houston at the start of training camp but was unable to survive season-opening roster cuts. The 24-year-old will now have a full offseason with the Texans to make an impression.
The Texans waived Hansen on Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Hansen originally signed with Houston at the start of training camp. The 24-year-old bounced around prior to that, signing contracts with the Saints, Broncos and Patriots. Hansen didn't see any regular-season action in 2018 after appearing in 15 games for the Jets in the 2017 season, logging 342 snaps on offense and catching nine passes for 94 yards on 17 targets.
The Texans claimed Hansen off waivers, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Houston becomes the sixth NFL team to take a shot on Hansen, who was originally drafted by the Jets in the fourth round of the 2017 draft. After a disappointing rookie season, the 6-foot-2, 202-pound wideout had brief stays with New England, Denver, Tennessee and New Orleans. He's one of 13 receivers in camp, so the 24-year-old faces a challenge to stick with the Texans.
