Texans Place CB Kayvon Webster On IR, Promote DB Mike Tyson


Ian Rapoport reports that the Texans are placing CB Kayvon Webster on injured reserve and promoting DB Mike Tyson to their active roster on Tuesday.

Webster, 27, is a former third-round pick of the Broncos back in 2013. He has played out his four- year, $2,745,800 contract before signing a two-year, $7.75 million contract that included $4.25 million guaranteed with the Rams last March.

Webster was set to make a base salary of $3 million for the 2018 season when the Rams released him during the offseason. The Texans later signed him to a contract in the final week of the preseason.

In 2018, Webster has appeared in one game for the Texans and recorded one tackle and no interceptions.

Tyson, 25, is a former seventh-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2017. He was waived coming out of the preseason last year before signing on to the Seahawks practice squad and eventually being promoted in December.

The Seahawks, once again, waived Tyson at the start of the regular season a few months ago and he elected to sign on to the Texans’ practice squad.

Tyson has yet to appear in an NFL game.

During his college career at Cincinnati, Tyson recorded 137 tackles, 7.5 tackles for a loss, seven interceptions, 11 pass defenses and a fumble recovery over the course of four seasons and 39 games.
