With Forsett in, Javarris Williams is out

Over the weekend, veteran running back Justin Forsett declared that he has joined the Texans, the team for which he worked out last Wednesday.  And with Forsett joining the depth chart, someone has to go.

According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, the Texans have said “yippee-ki-yay” to Javarris Williams.

For G.M. Rick Smith, the move didn’t require much emotional detachment.  A seventh-round pick by the Chiefs in 2009, Williams joined the Texans last August.  Cut in early September, he was added to the practice squad the following month.

Williams has six career rushing attempts.  For six yards.

He likely won’t be the last to go.  With five running backs currently on the roster, the final depth chart undoubtedly will consist of Arian Foster, Ben Tate, and likely two others.

The two others currently on the roster are Jonathan Grimes and Davin Meggett.

If Forsett sticks around, he may have to contribute on special teams, too.

  1. Forsett has been a quality backup for the Seahawks but they needed a bigger back. Forsett was not as good a kick returner as Leon Washington but is a better runner and pass blocker. He is excellent in pass protection.

  2. “According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, the Texans have said “yippee-ki-yay” to Javarris Williams.”

    The John McClain I’m familiar with adds another word after ‘yippee-ki-yay’….

  3. Javarris is a class act that should get another chance to play. He spent his last day as a Texan in Hermann Park hanging with Texans fans. TEXANSNATION!!!

  4. Forsett has the heart of a lion and will contribute very well as a change of pace back for the Texans.

  5. I would like to see a bigger back as the 3rd RB in Houston. But as long as Foster and Tate stay healthy it doesn’t really matter.
