Texans sign RB Gerrid Doaks, release FB Paul Quessenberry

·1 min read

The Houston Texans have altered their roster as they prepare to take on the Indianapolis Colts Sunday at 12:00 p.m. Central Time to kickoff the 2022 regular season.

Houston signed Gerrid Doaks after having a visit with the running back on Sept. 7.

The Miami Dolphins picked Doaks in Round 7 of the 2021 NFL draft from Cincinnati. The 5-11, 228-pound running back spent time on the Dolphins’ practice squad, signed a reserve/future contract with the team at the end of the 2021 campaign, and was waived at the end of the 2022 preseason as the team finalized its 53-man rostser.

To make room for Doaks, the Texans cut fullback Paul Quessenberry, who was part of the Texans’ commitment to utilize the position in offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton’s run-heavy scheme. However, undrafted rookie Troy Hairston won the job.
