Texans sign five players to active roster

Posted Oct 28, 2013

The Texans signed three running backs and two inside linebackers to the 53-man roster during the bye.

The Texans signed three running backs and two inside linebackers to the 53-man roster during the bye.

Dennis Johnson, Deji Karim, and Ray Graham participated in training camp in August. Graham, who was already on the practice squad, was placed on the active roster. With Arian Foster and Ben Tate both battling injuries right now, head coach Gary Kubiak is not worried about having five running backs on the roster.

“Well, two of them couldn’t play right now, so somebody’s got to play," Kubiak said. "We better start getting these young guys ready and we’re concerned about special teams health really. We’re talking about three guys that should help us on special teams.”

Tavares Gooden, sixth-year veteran, started at linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers. Gooden, a 2008 third-round draft pick from the University of Miami, has logged 73 tackles, one pass defensed, and one forced fumble in his NFL career. Jeff Tarpinian, a third-year linebacker from Iowa, was recently on the practice squad for the Carolina Panthers.
