Texans Designate OLB Brennan Scarlett To Return, Sign G Beau Benzschawel To PS


The Houston Texans announced Wednesday that they’ve designated OLB Brennan Scarlett to return from injured reserve and signed G Beau Benzschawel to their practice squad.

Here’s the Texans updated practice squad:

  1. DT Auzoyah Alufohai
  2. LB Davin Bellamy (Injured)
  3. DB Anthony Chesley
  4. WR Chad Hansen
  5. C Greg Mancz
  6. WR Steven Mitchell
  7. T Elijah Nkansah
  8. LB Emmanuel Ellerbee
  9. K Brett Maher
  10. WR Damion Ratley
  11. DB Jonathan Owens
  12. LB Curtis Bolton
  13. WR Artavis Scott
  14. C Cohl Cabral
  15. WR J’Mon Moore
  16. DB Manny Patterson
  17. G Beau Benzschawel

This opens a three-week window of time for the Texans to activate him from injured reserve and add him to their 53-man roster.

Scarlett, 27, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Texans as an undrafted free agent out of Stanford back in 2016. He managed to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason but was placed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury before being activated later on.

Scarlett returned to the Texans on a one-year extension worth $3.75 million last year. 

In 2020, Scarlett has appeared in eight games for the Texans and recorded 24 tackles.
