Texans elevate Chris Moore, Jeff Driskel, sign Joey Slye


The Texans officially elevated veteran wide receiver and special-teams standout Chris Moore and backup quarterback Jeff Drisel from the practice squad to the active roster.

Moore joined the Texans this offseason to play for former Baltimore Ravens receivers coach, passing game coordinator and assistant head coach David Culley. Driskel is slated to back up rookie starter Davis Mills with Tyrod Taylor on injured reserve for roughly a month with a Grade 2 strained hamstring. The Texans signed kicker Joey Slye to the active roster from the practice squad. Slye is the replacement for injured kicker Ka'imi Fairbairn who is on injured reserve with a groin injury. Slye missed a field goal try against the Browns wide left, but made three field goals against the Jaguars and has converted all of his extra points with 10 touchbacks on 12 kickoffs.
