The Texans released Langford on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Langford's dismissal likely sets the stage for the Texans to activate tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) from injured reserve in advance of Sunday's matchup with the Rams. During his month-long stay with the Texans, Langford only appeared in one game, with his lone snap coming on special teams.
Langford (back) practiced without limitations Wednesday.
Barring any setbacks, Langford will be set to make his season debut against the Colts on Sunday. He slots into a reserve role, but since starter Joel Heath (knee) sat out of practice Wednesday, Langford could move up into that starting position. Langford spent the past two seasons playing for the Colts, racking up 48 tackles (31 solo) and seven sacks over 23 games, and it'll be interesting to see how he performs with the Texans.
Langford (back) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.
Langford is still looking for his first game action with the Texans after signing earlier in October. He brings added depth to a battered defensive line, and Sunday would've been a good opportunity to log considerable snaps since Joel Heath (knee) is also inactive Sunday.
Langford has a back injury and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Langford was signed by the Texans earlier this month and could see a larger role Sunday, if he is able to play, since starting defensive end Joel Heath (knee) has been ruled out. Carlos Watkins would likely be pressed into a heavy workload if Langford can't play against the Seahawks.
Langford was let go by the Saints a week ago, but it doesn't seem like he'll be out of a job for long. The Texans need to bolster their defensive line with J.J. Watt (lower leg) expected to undergo season-ending surgery. Langford likely will serve in a reserve role until he gets more acclimated to the playbook.
