Andre Brown released by Texans - [Full Article]

The Houston Texans have made a bevy of moves in the backfield.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported on Monday that the team released running back Andre Brown, per a source informed of the move. Houston also cut runners Dennis Johnson and Tim Cornett, per John McClain of The Houston Chronicle.

The moves clear a path for new talent after the Texans worked out journeymen Brian Leonard, Ronnie Brown and William Powell earlier on Monday, per McClain.

Until they add bodies, the team's less-than-titanic depth chart features Arian Foster ahead of Jonathan Grimes and rookie Alfred Blue.

Fantasy Impact: 

It's not really a surprise. Brown was buried on the team's depth chart and didn't play in the team's opening game - a blowout loss to the Cardinals. He was poised to be a valuable addition as a strong backup to often-injured Foster after two pretty good years with the Giants.
