The Texans called up Jeff Driskel from the practice squad as a game-day promotion the past three weeks, twice as a standard promotion and once as a COVID-19 replacement. But with Driskel out of standard promotions, the Texans had to make a move to get him on the game-day roster this week.
The Texans are signing Driskel to the active roster, Aaron Wilson of Sports Talk 790 reports.
Driskel has not played a snap this season.
He is a career backup who has started nine games in three seasons with the Bengals, Lions and Broncos, teams that have gone 1-8 in the games he started.
In three seasons, Driskel has completed 58.6 percent of his passes for 2,120 yards with 13 touchdowns and eight interceptions.
