The Houston Texans continued to shuffle their roster but have potentially received some good news on Wednesday. Safety Lonnie Ballentine has been allowed to practice for the first time all season but he will remain on the PUP list for the time being. The Texans will receive a three week window to evaluate Ballentine closer who is coming back from major knee surgery and then decide to activate him to the 53-man roster.
Ballentine was drafted with the final selection of the 2013 NFL Draft and has been slowed by injuries his first two seasons in the NFL. Last season he injured his knee against the Jacksonville Jaguars which nearly took a full calendar year to heal and come back to 100 percent.
The Texans remain high on the potential of Ballentine and him returning to the practice field could mean he is close to getting back into a Texans uniform.
