·1 min read

The Houston Texans won’t be adding Demone Harris to their 53-man roster.

According to Aaron Wilson from the Pro Football Network, the Texans have released the 6-4, 272-pound defensive end.

Harris had joined the Texans last season and was on the roster from Week 11 to the conclusion of the regular season. The only activation Harris saw was in Week 16 when the Texans’ roster was depleted from numerous players testing positive for COVID-19. The Texans beat the playoff-contending Los Angeles Chargers 41-29 inside NRG Stadium with Harris contributing with 41 snaps.

During preseason, the Texans were using Harris on special teams to compress running lanes on kickoffs, according to special teams coordinator Frank Ross on Aug. 16.
