Texans Make Five Roster Moves Including Promoting WR Phillip Dorsett

Aaron Wilson reports that the Houston Texans are elevating WR Phillip Dorsett from the practice squad to the active roster for their game this week.

"<strongThe Texans have confirmed the news and announced the following roster moves:

  • Texans signed WR Phillip Dorsett to their active roster.
  • Texans elevated DB Grayland Arnold and DL Chris Smith to their active roster.
  • Texans signed WR Damon Hazelton to their practice squad.
  • Texans placed RB Jaylon Samuels on practice squad COVID-19 list.

Dorsett, 28, is a former first-round pick by the Colts in the 2015 NFL Draft. The Patriots acquired him from the Colts in exchange for QB Jacoby Brissett.

Dorsett re-signed with New England on a one-year deal after his rookie contract expired in 2019.  The Seahawks later signed Dorsett to a one-year contract last year but missed the entire season with a foot injury.

Dorsett had signed a one-year, $1.1 million deal with the Jaguars in March, but was released coming out of the preseason and later signed to Jacksonville’s practice squad. The Jaguars released him last month and he later signed on to the Seahawks’ practice squad.

Seattle just recently released him.  

In 2021, Dorsett appeared in three games for the Seahawks and Jaguars, catching one pass for three yards and no touchdowns.

We had him included in our Top 100 Available 2021 Free Agents list.
