The Houston Texans are going in a different direction with their run game.

According to Aaron Wilson of Sports Talk 790, the Texans are cutting former Pro Bowl running back Phillip Lindsay.

Lindsay produced one carry for minus-3 yards in the 22-13 win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 11. Throughout the 2021 campaign, Lindsay tallied 50 carries for 130 yards and a touchdown. His single-game high was 39 yards generated in the Week 6 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

The former Denver Bronco signed a one-year, $3.25 million contract to join the Texans in free agency. Lindsay was a strong proponent of Houston and their culture throughout training camp.

“Think about it, everybody come in here and, for some reason, they think we’re the scum bucket,” Lindsay said on July 29. “I don’t know what they got going on in the media. Everybody has something to prove because there’s some great dudes in there, and they are really talented and they played a lot of football. And we just want to get on the same page, and we’re going to do that over time and put some games together and win a lot of games. That’s our goal.”

The 2-8 Texans host the 2-8 New York Jets Sunday at 12:00 p.m. Central Time at NRG Stadium.
