The Houston Texans are going with a familiar face to help out in the secondary.

The Texans signed corner Desmond King to the practice squad Monday. Houston previously rostered King from 2021-22 wherein the former Pro Bowler played 33 games for the Texans. King collected 182 combined tackles, 11 tackles for loss, two quarterback hits, five interceptions, 14 pass breakups, a forced fumble, and two fumble recoveries while with the Texans.

Houston released King at the end of preseason, and he spent three games with the Pittsburgh Steelers primarily as their kick returner. King returned four kickoffs for 88 yards. King logged one defensive snap compared to 15 special teams snaps.
