Texans Eligible Practice Squad Players

Publish date:

The Houston Texans have 90 players on their current roster and we have paired down which ones are eligible for the practice squad. This is an important aspect for organizations to set their roster, and here is the eligible players for the eight man squad practice squad.


1. A player who has not accrued a season of NFL experience is eligible for the practice squad.

2. A free agent who was active (46-man game-day roster) for fewer than nine games during their accrued season(s) is eligible for the practice squad.

3. A player cannot be on a practice squad for a third season unless his team has a full 53-man roster.
