McGough signed a reserve/future contract with the Texans on Monday. McGough joined the Texans' practice squad after being let go off the 53-man roster in mid-October, and he'll also begin the offseason with the team. The 24-year-old spent a month on the active roster but has yet to see game action since being selected in the seventh round of the 2018 draft by Seattle.
McGough signed with the Texans' practice squad Saturday. McGough was waived by the Texans this week but will remain with the organization after clearing waivers. The 2018 seventh-round pick will continue to work as the team's No. 3 quarterback behind Deshaun Watson and A.J. McCarron.
The Texans waived McGough on Wednesday, Deepi Sidhu of the Texans' official site reports. McGough was the Texans' third quarterback behind Deshaun Watson and A.J. McCarron, but letting him go frees up a roster spot for offensive tackle Dan Skipper. If McGough clears waivers, he's expected to land on the practice squad.
The Texans promoted McGough to the 53-man roster Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. While there's speculation this is due to Deshaun Watson being roughed up by the Saints in the season opener, Pelissero emphasized that this move was in the works beforehand since the Jaguars showed interest in McGough after Nick Foles broke his collarbone. McGough will likely be a healthy inactive for most games because AJ McCarron is handling the backup duties.
McGough signed with the Texans' practice squad Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports. McGough was waived by the Jaguars after a rough preseason. The 23-year-old will now turn his attention toward developing while on Houston's practice squad.
