Houston Texans Bring Back Defensive Lineman Joel Heath - Waive Offensive Tackle Dan Skipper

Patrick D. Starr

The Houston Texans have re-signed a familiar face in defensive lineman Joel Heath. Heath has been a mainstay in the Texans locker room since he made the team as a rookie free agent in 2016. 

Heath has spent the last three seasons with the Texans and has been a spot start on the defensive line. Starting 15 of the 30 games he has appeared in, Heath 34 total tackles and 3.0 sacks. 

Battling a knee injury the past two seasons, Heath has been working to get back to himself on the field. He spent the entire off-season and preseason with the Texans before being released to start the season. 

To make room for Heath, the Texans waived offensive tackle Dan Skipper who they signed off the New England Patriots practice squad.
