The Houston Texans released RB Andre Brown on Monday, Aug. 11.
Huddle Up: Brown, who was thought to be the clear backup to Arian Foster, apparently wasn't thought much of by the Texans' new coaching staff which released the veteran back two days after not playing him in the preseason opener. As to who is the Texans' No. 2 RB, take your pick between Jonathan Grimes and sixth-round rookie draft pick Alfred Blue. It won't be Dennis Johnson or rookie free agent Tim Cornett who were also shown the door Monday.

Houston Texans RBs Andre Brown and Alfred Blue may be the two main candidates for the No. 2 running back job during training camp.
Huddle Up: The former N.Y. Giant Brown would seem to rate an edge over the sixth-round rookie Blue, and this could come into play if Arian Foster's health issues flare up again. Still, Gary Kubiak and his run-oriented attack are now in Baltimore, so don't expect the fantasy gold that was the Texans' ground game a few seasons ago.
