D'Onta Foreman Not Ready Yet

  • Stationed on the Texans‘ PUP list, D’Onta Foreman can return to practice this week but probably won’t, per Bill O’Brien (via Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, on Twitter). Foreman’s been out since late last season because of an Achilles’ tendon tear.
  • Former Lions, Patriots and Bengals linebacker Marquis Flowers worked out for the Texans on Monday, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com tweets. The Lions cut Flowers last week. He played in 16 games for the Bengals in 2015 and ’16 and suited up for all 19 of the Patriots’ games last year.

Today’s workout updates, with all links going to veteran NFL reporter Howard Balzer’s Twitter account unless otherwise noted:

Chicago Bears

  • P Brock Miller (link)

Houston Texans

  • OT Dieugot Joseph (link)

Jacksonville Jaguars

  • OT Corey Robinson; RB Thomas Rawls (link)

New England Patriots

  • DE Will Clarke; QB Connor Cook; LB Kasim Edebali; WR Devin Ross; TE Shane Wimann (link)

Tennessee Titans

  • LS’s Andrew East, Taybor Pepper (link)

Overall, nothing too noteworthy. The Patriots interestingly continue to work out quarterbacks, bringing in former Raiders third-rounder Connor Cook for a tryout. New England has Bryan Hoyer firmly entrenched behind Tom Brady, but also recently worked out Landry Jones.

Meanwhile, the Titans seem set to bring in a new long snapper, as the team also worked out veteran Jon Condo today.

Bengals Sign Matt Lengel

The Bengals signed tight end Matt Lengel off of the Texans’ practice squad, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweets. Lengel will give the Bengals another tight end to work with following Tyler Eifert‘s season-ending injury. 

Lengel, 28 in December, first entered the league as a UDFA with the Bengals in 2015. In 2016, he hooked on with the Patriots where he caught his only NFL touchdown to date. Last year, he was waived/injured by the Pats and found his way to the Browns practice squad. He earned a promotion midway through the year and saw time in a December loss to the Bears. Lengel was picked up by the Texans after the Browns waived him in April, and he joined their practice squad after missing the final cut. Now, he’s back where it all started.

Lengel has appeared in seven career NFL games and hopes to add to the total in Cincinnati. For now, he’ll be playing behind Tyler Kroft, C.J. Uzomah, and Mason Schreck.

Texans Place Kayvon Webster On IR

The Texans will place Kayvon Webster on injured reserve, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (on Twitter). It’s currently unclear whether Webster will be a candidate to return later this year. 

[RELATED: Texans Promote Mike Tyson]

Webster spent the first four years of his career as a reserve with the Broncos, but signed a two-year deal with the Rams last spring. The reunion with defensive coordinator Wade Phillips did not go as planned, and neither has his reboot with the Texans. Webster joined the club in late August, but an Achilles injury prevented him from playing in the first four games of the season. He returned this past week to face the Cowboys, but he suffered a quadriceps injury that will shut him down for a while.

On Tuesday, the Texans elevated defensive back Mike Tyson from the practice squad to help fill in for Webster. The Texans could elevate Shareece Wright to the starting lineup to replace Webster, or they could shift Kareem Jackson over from safety and use Justin Reid as a first-stringer in the middle.
