The Texans worked out veteran long snapper Beau Brinkley, a former Pro Bowl selection, and kicker Dominik Eberle on Friday, according to a league source not authorized to speak publicly.
Neither player was immediately signed to a contract and it may have been a precautionary measure due to the COVID-19 outbreak impacting the Texans and other NFL teams.
Brinkley, 31, has played in 135 career games and has 33 tackles, snapping for the Arizona Cardinals, Detroit Lions and Tennessee Titans.
He went undrafted out of Missouri. He was released by the Titans last year and has been off and on the Cardinals' practice squad and active roster this season.
Texans long snapper Jon Weeks, the longest tenured player in franchise history, is playing under a one-year contract and is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent.
Eberle, 25, has kicked for the Las Vegas Raiders and Carolina Panthers. He played collegiately at Utah State.
He was most recently with the Panthers' practice squad..
Ka'imi Fairbairn, signed last year to a four-year, $18.75 million contract, is coming off a career-long field goal, a franchise-record 61-yard kick against the Seattle Seahawks.
