Week 17 Outlook
Houston waived Karan Higdon on Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Higdon, an undrafted rookie free agent got caught up in a numbers game. The 22-year-old running back had some moments in the preseason and should catch onto a practice squad.
Karan Higdon carried eight times for 25 yards and caught both his targets for an additional 16 yards during Thursday's 22-10 preseason loss to the Rams.
Higdon started the game but failed to make a big impression when on the field. Higdon, an undrafted rookie free agent, had his roster chances improve after preseason Week 3 when Lamar Miller suffered a season-ending knee injury but right now looks like he is on the bubble. Keep an eye on final cuts.
Karan Higdon gained 28 yards on 13 carries and failed to bring in his only target during Saturday's 34-0 preseason loss to the Cowboys.
Higdon did not take advantage of the extra carries on Saturday as he only rushed for 2.2 yards. Higdon is a rookie free agent who was Michigan's leading rusher during his last two seasons. He has a good shot at making the team especially with Lamar Miller going down with a knee injury.
Karan Higdon rushed eight times for 37 yards in Thursday's 28-26 preseason opening loss to the Packers.
Higdon is an undrafted rookie out of Michigan trying to make the Texans roster. Higdon's chances of making the team took a hit when they traded for Duke Johnson on Thursday but will still see some opportunities in the preseason.
