Texans Re-Sign QB Joe Webb, Place CB Jermaine Kelly Jr On IR


The Houston Texans announced Monday that they’ve signed QB Joe Webb and placed CB Jermaine Kelly Jr. on injured reserve.

The Texans signed CB Mike Tyson to their practice squad.

The Houston Texans are re-signing QB Joe Webb, according to his agent David Canter.

Webb, 31, is a former sixth-round pick of the Vikings back in 2010. After four years in Minnesota, Webb signed a two-year deal with the Panthers and has served as a receiver and a backup quarterback.

Carolina brought Webb back on a two-year contract back in 2016 before releasing him at the start of last season. The Bills later signed him to a contract and he finished out the year in Buffalo.

The Texans signed Webb to a contract this past April but elected to release him as they trimmed their roster down to 53 players.  Houston brought him back in early September. 

In 2017, Webb appeared in all 16 games for the Bills and completed two of seven pass attempts for 35 yards, no touchdowns and an interception. He also rushed for 54 yards on eight carries.
