Texans Place TE C.J. Fiedorowicz On Injured Reserve, Activate WR Jaelen Strong

The Houston Texans announced Tuesday that they’ve placed TE C.J. Fiedorowicz on injured reserve with a concussion to make room for WR Jaelen Strong, who has been activated from suspension.

Fiedorowicz, 25, is a former third-round pick of the Texans back in 2014. He was in the final year of his four-year, $3.95 million contract and was to make a base salary of $831,810 for the 2017 season when the Texans recently signed him to a brand new three-year, $21.5 million extension with $10 million guaranteed.

In 2016, Fiedorowicz appeared in 15 games for the Texans and caught 54 passes for 559 yards receiving and four touchdowns. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 16 tight end out of 62 qualifying players.

Strong, 23, was taken in the third round of the 2015 NFL draft by the Texans. He’s in the third year of his four-year, $3.281 million rookie contract that included $820,338 guaranteed.

Strong stands to make base salaries of $615,000 (2017), and $705,000 (2018) over the remainder of the contract.

In 2016, Strong appeared in eight games for the Texans and recorded 14 receptions for 131 yards receiving.
