Prosise signed a contract with the Buccaneers on Friday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.
Prosise spent three weeks on Tampa Bay's practice squad back in January. Prior to that, he suited up for 10 regular-season games with the Texans, a span during which he recorded 10 carries for 19 yards, plus five catches for 18 yards and a score. With both Leonard Fournette and LeSean McCoy possibly moving on in free agency, Prosise could get a chance to compete for a reserve role this offseason.
Prosise was waived from the Buccaneers' practice squad Friday.
Prosise's stint in Tampa Bay has come to an end after not appearing in any games for the Buccaneers. The running back did log 10 games of regular-season action with the Texans in 2020, however, carrying 10 times for 19 yards and recording five receptions for 18 yards and a touchdown.
Prosise has signed with the Buccaneers' practice squad, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.
The running backs currently on the team's active roster are Ronald Jones, Leonard Fournette, Ke'Shawn Vaughn and LeSean McCoy. Prosise provides the Bucs with another backfield option in advance of their playoff run, which begins Saturday night against Washington. The 2016 third-rounder logged 10 carries for 19 yards and caught five passes for 18 yards and a TD in 10 games with the Texans this past season.
The Buccaneers are bringing in Prosise (ankle) for a tryout, Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com reports.
Prosise sat out Houston's Week 16 home game against the Bengals because of an ankle issue, and he was subsequently cut the following day. Tampa Bay may find benefit from the 26-year-old's services given a slew of injury issues at running back, so long as Prosise himself is fully healthy at the moment. Leonard Fournette (abdomen) was limited in practice Thursday, while Kenjon Barner (groin) and T.J. Logan (knee) remain on IR.
Prosise (ankle) was waived by Houston on Monday, Aaron Reiss of The Athletic reports.
The 26-year-old missed Week 16 with the ankle injury and is now parting ways with the Texans. Prosise appeared in 10 games this season and had 10 carries for 19 yards, five receptions for 18 yards and returned eight kickoffs for 149 yards.
Prosise (ankle) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals.
The 26-year-old appeared to be in the clear for backup carries in Week 16 after he submitted full practice sessions Thursday and Friday. Duke Johnson (neck) was ruled out ahead of him on the depth chart, but now Prosise, too, has been deemed inactive for Week 16. Buddy Howell and Scottie Phillips will garner any backup RB work behind David Johnson as result of Prosise's late scratch.
Prosise, who sat out Week 15 with an ankle injury, was a full participant for the final two practices this week and is healthy entering Sunday's contest against the Bengals.
Houston's running back depth chart gets a shakeup for the second straight game with second stringer Duke Johnson (neck) ruled out. David Johnson will start with Prosise, Buddy Howell and Scottie Phillips ready for increased work if necessary.
Prosise (ankle) practiced in full Thursday.
By way of his improved status, the 26-year-old back is seemingly in the clear for Sunday's upcoming matchup against the Bengals. Prosise couldn't suit up last Sunday against the Colts, costing him a second appearance in three weeks. Against Cincinnati, he's expected to slot into a depth position at RB while continuing his role as a top kick returner alongside Scottie Phillips.
Prosise (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
It's an encouraging sign that Prosise is on the field to start the week, as he only practiced once last week before sitting out against the Colts. If Prosise can't shake the injury for Sunday's matchup versus the Bengals, Buddy Howell could serve as the No. 2 running back again, pending Duke Johnson's (neck) status.
Prosise (ankle) is ruled out for Sunday's game in Indianapolis.
Prosise won't travel with the team to Indianapolis, and he's missed back-to-back practices, so it doesn't look like he was particularly close to taking the field. With Duke Johnson (neck) also ruled out, Buddy Howell stands to serve as the No. 2 option behind David Johnson.
Prosise (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.
Prosise has now missed two straight practices, a hint that he may be trending in the wrong direction to play in Indianapolis. With Duke Johnson (neck) also questionable, however, Prosise could get a chance to serve as the top backup to David Johnson if healthy.
Prosise (ankle) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Prosise was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice, so it's certainly not a good sign to see the running back downgraded. Prosise (13 snaps, two touches) seemed to slide down the depth chart in last week's loss to the Bears, as he was out-touched and out-snapped by Buddy Howell (23, 12) in the contest. Prosise is trending in the wrong direction for Sunday's game against the Colts, but considering his limited role, his absence wouldn't affect much from a fantasy perspective.
Prosise was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice due to an ankle injury.
It's unclear how Prosise suffered the ankle injury but it's serious enough to limited his practice reps. The Notre Dame product was virtually phased out of the gameplan in Week 14, only carrying the ball once for two yards and he caught his lone target for 10 yards in the loss to Chicago. Prosise seems to be falling down the depth chart, so even if he's healthy enough to play in Sunday's game against the Colts, he won't affect much from a fantasy perspective.
Prosise has one carry for two yards and caught his lone target for 10 yards in Sunday's 36-7 loss to the Bears.
With David Johnson (reserve/COVID-19 list) unavailable, Duke Johnson started the game with Prosise and Buddy Howell serving as the top backups. Prosise (13 snaps, two touches) lagged behind Howell (23, 12) in what was a surprising development. David Johnson is due back next week, so we could see a more normal distribution of playing time Week 15 against the Colts.
Prosise was a full participant in practices Thursday and Friday and is set to play Week 14 against the Bears.
Prosise, who opened the practice week as questionable with a non-COVID-related illness, could be a factor this week against the Bears. In a related development, the Texans placed lead running back David Johnson on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, which means Prosise moves up to second on the depth chart behind Duke Johnson.
Prosise (illness) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice.
Prosise missed last week's game as he was hospitalized with a non-COVID-related stomach illness, and he continues to recover. Even if Prosise is healthy and available for Sunday's game against the Bears, he's likely to have a diminished role, as David Johnson (concussion) returned from injured reserve last week.
Prosise (illness) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Colts, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Prosise is currently hospitalized with a non-COVID-related stomach illness, which explains his absence from practice this week. With David Johnson (concussion) inching toward a return from IR, it seems likely that Prosise's role would have been diminished even if he were healthy.
Prosise (illness) did not practice Thursday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Prosise has now missed back-to-back practices, making his availability for Sunday's game against the Colts unclear. He's coming off his best game of the season, but with David Johnson (concussion) apparently nearing a return, Prosise could find himself relegated back to a depth role even if he manages to get fully healthy.
Prosise didn't participate in Wednesday's practice due to an illness.
This is tough news for Prosise, as the Notre Dame product is coming off his best game of the season, supplying five carries for 12 yards and a touchdown catch in a Thanksgiving win. To make matters worse, David Johnson (concussion) was designated for a return off injured reserve Wednesday, so the opportunities could be disappearing soon. Look for Prosise's practice availability the rest of the week to shed a light on his chances to play in Sunday's game against the Colts.
Prosise had five carries for 12 yards, caught his lone target for a two-yard touchdown and lost fumble in Thursday's 41-25 win over the Lions.
Prosise scored his first touchdown of the season in the win. The five-year veteran spent the last three weeks as the primary backup to Duke Johnson while David Johnson (concussion) spent time on injured reserve. He's been getting a little more work each week, but David Johnson is eligible to return Week 13 against Indianapolis. Prosise's window of relevance may have shut.
