Jaelen Strong doesn’t play for the Texans anymore, but he’s staying in the AFC South.
According to multiple reports, the Jaguars claimed Strong off of waivers a day after the Texans cut him loose.
Strong didn’t play in the opener because he was serving a suspension and didn’t catch a pass in last Thursday’s victory over the Bengals. Strong was a 2015 third-round pick and caught 28 passes for 292 yards and three touchdowns in his first two NFL seasons.
Defensive tackle Michael Bennett is headed to injured reserve in a corresponding move. The 2015 sixth-round pick had a tackle in his lone appearance this season.
