Texans Notebook: Broncos Are Well Aware Brock Osweiler Is On His Way

The Houston Texans made multiple moves to sort out their roster and the Denver Broncos are well aware Brock Osweiler is on his way.

The Texans are looking to bring in help and worked out three defensive backs on Tuesday. The team came into Wednesday with multiple roster moves, both adding and subtracting players in an effort to reinforce the team after multiple injuries led up to this point. 

The Moves

Signed safety Don Jones to the 53-man roster. 

Signed defensive lineman Brandon Dunn to the 53-man roster from the practice squad. 

Signed cornerback Denzel Rice to the practice squad. 

Placed outside linebacker Brennan Scarlett on the injured reserve. 

Placed safety K.J. Dillon on the injured reserve due to a torn ACL. 

At some point, cornerback Kevin Johnson will be placed on the injured reserve, which indicates that another move will come before the Monday night game versus the Denver Broncos. 

Speaking of the Broncos, they are preparing for the return of Brock Osweiler and linebacker Brandon Marshall already had some choice words early on his former teammate who is heading back to play at the stadium he called home for four seasons. 

“I don’t think anybody in this locker room cares that he left,’’ said Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall to 9 News of Denver. “I think everybody’s happy – when you’re a player in this league, you’re happy when another player gets his money, when he gets what he’s due. So everybody in this locker room, nobody has any ill will towards Brock.

“At the same time, it’s competition and we want to shut him down. Just because it’s Brock. We know Brock. He came from here and we just want to kill him. That’s what we want to do.’’

He continued, “We know Brock likes to hold the ball so we feel like we can get a lot of good pressure on him, man,’’ Marshall said. “Just watching their offense, I think this is going to be a great week for us.’’

It is clear the Broncos have had this game circled on their calendar and, not only is Osweiler returning to play his former teammates, but it is Alumni Night with the team inducting three players into their ring of honor. The Broncos will be wearing their alternate blue uniform jerseys for the game. 

Even Monday Night Football knows the situation.

Sometimes we need to have some fun, so with Lamar Miller’s big day in week 6, we made sure to highlight his best play of the game: his touchdown reception. We just made sure to add some Tecmo Bowl sound effects - that was the first thing we thought of after seeing Miller’s remarkable play.
