The Texans didn’t want to lose Jonathan Grimes to begin with. And now they have him back.

According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, the Texans claimed Grimes off waivers, after the Jets cut him.

The Jets had signed Grimes off the Texans practice squad earlier this year. He appeared in three games, with two carries for six yards.

An undrafted rookie from William and Mary, Grimes led the Texans in rushing this preseason.

UPDATE 5:35 p.m. ET: To make room for him on the roster, the Texans released linebacker Mister Alexander.
