Ballentine (knee) reached an injury settlement with the Texans on Friday and is now a free agent.
Ballentine essentially missed the entirety of training camp with the injury, and has battled injuries throughout the last few seasons. The specifics of the injury are still murky, so it's unknown if the 24-year-old is likely to earn a chance elsewhere.
Ballentine (knee) was placed on IR Sunday.
Given his familiarity with the team, it makes sense that Houston opted to revert him to IR.
Ballentine (knee) was waived injured by the Texans.
Ballentine already has two seasons in Houston's system, so they may try to add him to injured reserve if he goes unclaimed.
Ballentine hasn't been practicing during training camp due to left knee discomfort, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Ballentine suffered a knee injury back in 2014 and has battled injuries in subsequent seasons, limiting him to just four games combined in 2015 and 2016. This latest injury further complicates his chances of earning regular snaps in the defensive backfield heading into the upcoming campaign.
