The Texans will place Thomas on injured reserve and add someone to their roster.
Thomas, 30, originally signed on with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Stanford back in 2012. He was on and off the 49ers’ practice squad before the Dolphins signed him off their practice squad back in 2013.
Miami later signed him to two consecutive one-year exclusive rights deals and brought him back on a one-year restricted contract worth $1.797 million for the 2017 season. From there, he signed on with the Giants in 2018 and agreed to a one-year contract with the Texans this past March.
Thomas will once again be an unrestricted free agent in 2021.
In 2020, Thomas appeared in nine games for the Texans and recorded 15 tackles and no interceptions.
