Mike Catapano: Released by Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Catapano was released by the Texans on Friday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Catapano signed with the Texans a little over a week ago for the tail end of training camp. The 27-year-old brought veteran experience to the team, but he was never seen as having a legitimate chance to make the final roster with Houston boasting a stout defensive line.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Catapano (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Connor Hughes of New Jersey Advanced Media reports.

Catapano missed last week's game against the Dolphins due to his knee injury, and the team has since determined that he wouldn't be able to play in the final two weeks of the season. Josh Martin and Freddie Bishop figure to see a few extra reps with Catapano absent for the final couple tilts.

Chiefs' Mike Catapano on his health: I feel better than ever
by Sean D'Oliveira | CBS Sports Staff

After missing the entire 2014 season with a gastrointestinal virus, Chiefs defensive end Mike Catapano was able to participate in the team's OTA on Wednesday, reports The Kansas City Star.

"Every time I step on the field now it's with purpose and with extra vigor that I never really had," Catapano said. "It feels great. I feel better than ever."

Catapano played in 15 games during his rookie season in 2013 and he totaled four tackles and one sack. He said he's ready to surpass that in 2015.

"I'm ready to show that I offer a lot to this team. I'm ready to step up in big situations and starting situations," Catapano said. "I just want to keep getting better every day… and play to the best of my abilities."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBS Sports Staff

The Chiefs moved defensive end Mike Catapano, who has been out for a month with an undisclosed illness, from the reserve/non-football illness list to injured reserve, according to The Kansas City Star.

"I think that’s where we’re at," head coach Andy Reid said. "What he went through, that was a long process. So it’s better that he just steps back, gets himself back healthy and feeling good and then we go from there."
