Texans Promoting RB Akeem Hunt To Active Roster

The Houston Texans are promoting RBĀ Akeem Hunt to their active roster on Saturday, according to Mark Berman.

Hunt, 23, originally signed on with the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of Purdue back in May. However, he was unfortunately among their early roster cuts. The Ravens later signed him to their practice squad, but he lasted just a week in Baltimore.

The Texans signed him to their practice squad in November of last year before calling him up soon after. Houston elected to waive Hunt coming out of the preseason but he was once again added to their practice squad.

In 2015, Hunt appeared in seven games for the Texans and ran for 96 yards on 17 carries (5.6 YPC) to go along with six receptions for 39 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
