Ankou, 26, originally signed on with the Texans as an undrafted free agent out of UCLA back in 2017. He spent just over four months in Houston before he was waived at the start of the regular season and later claimed by the Jaguars.

Jacksonville cut Ankou loose coming out of the preseason last year and later re-signed him to their practice squad. He spent last year with the Browns before being claimed by the Colts. 

Indianapolis opted to waive him a few weeks ago and he was claimed off waivers by the Texans. 

In 2019, Ankou appeared in nine games for the Browns and recorded seven tackles and no sacks.
