Texans waived QB Craig Nall.
Nall, 29, was only on the club because Matt Schaub tore his MCL earlier in the year. Schaub is now 100 percent. Nall will struggle to find a job soon. Wed, Dec 17, 2008 04:56:00 PM

Texans declared third QB Craig Nall, DT Frank Okam, OG Kasey Studdard, LB Kevis Coley, TE Mark Bruener, CB Matterral Richardson, OL Rashad Butler, and FS Will Demps inactive for Monday Night Football.

Welcome to the NFL, Matterral. You can spend your first game in sweats. Richardson was recently signed off the Redskins' practice squad. Demps was a starter in 2007, but has predictably plummeted down the depth chart.

Texans signed QB Craig Nall.

Nall was selected over Bruce Gradkowski and Tim Rattay. He will back up Sage Rosenfels with starter Matt Schaub expected to miss a month with a knee injury.

The Texans, Vikings, and Packers have reportedly had discussions with free agent QB Craig Nall.

If all the Vikings do is add Nall behind Tarvaris Jackson, we wouldn't bet on them making the playoffs. Nall knows Gary Kubiak's system, but the Texans already have one of the league's top backups in Sage Rosenfels. If Houston acquired Nall, it's possible that Rosenfels would go on the trade block.

Craig Nall completed 7-of-15 passes for 88 yards and a touchdown. He also rushed five times for six yards in Week 17

Nall came in for Brett Favre in the second quarter and was unimpressive, but generated 13 second half points. Aaron Rodgers is expected to resume his backup QB duties in the playoffs.

Packers signed QB Craig Nall.

Friendship with Brett Favre has it's privileges. Nall, who was with Green Bay for four seasons until leaving for Buffalo, adds depth with Favre now banged up. Favre is expected to start in Week 14, but Nall may help take some practice snaps.

Texans released QB Craig Nall.

Houston chose to get rid of Nall, its third quarterback, rather than give up on Ahman Green's season. But if the Texans need another roster spot in the near future, it's quite possible Green will go on injured reserve.

Texans signed QB Craig Nall and waived WR Harry Williams.

Nall was added for depth as Matt Schaub (concussion) is unlikely to play in Week 9. Waived by the Bills earlier this month, Nall played under Texans OC Mike Sherman with the Packers. The Texans expect to add T Brandon Frye from their practice squad and could re-sign Williams, who played on special teams, to the practice squad.

The agent for former Bills QB Craig Nall says his client intends to sign with the Texans.

This an indication that the Texans are concerned about Matt Schaub's health. Nall knows offensive coordinator Mike Sherman from their days in Green Bay together, and could serve as Sage Rosenfels' backup in Week 9.

Bills released QB Craig Nall and signed QB Gibran Hamdan and WR Justin Jenkins from their practice squad.

Apparently the Bills aren't all that concerned with J.P. Losman's knee, after all. Hamdan doesn't have the body of work at quarterback Nall had. He can play receiver in a pinch, however. Jenkins will work on special teams.

Bills re-signed QB Craig Nall to a one-year contract.

Nall will be the new backup for rookie starter Trent Edwards, who will fill in for J.P. Losman (sprained knee). Nall could see playing time in the next few weeks if Edwards struggles like he did for most of Sunday.

Bills released QB Craig Nall.

The Bills apparently feel comfortable with only two quarterbacks after Trent Edwards' standout preseason, and thus Nall will hit the road once again.
Sat, Sep 1, 2007 11:30:00 PM

Craig Nall appears to be the Bills' third quarterback behind J.P. Losman and Trent Edwards, according to the Buffalo News.

The rookie Edwards has performed well during the preseason and training camp, whereas Nall has shown weak mobility and arm strength. However, Nall likely isn't in danger of losing his roster spot because he's a veteran.

Craig Nall is second on Buffalo's depth chart at quarterback following Kelly Holcomb's exit to Philadelphia.

We liked what we saw from Nall in the preseason while he was with Green Bay but he never passed Kelly Holcomb in 2006. The Bills could use a late draft pick on a Jared Zabransky type to push Nall in camp.
Mon, Mar 26, 2007 09:24:00 PM

Bills declared CB Ashton Youboty, RB Shaud Williams, S Matt Bowen, OL Brad Butler, OL Aaron Merz, DL Eric Powell, LB John DiGiorgio and third quarterback Craig Nall inactive for Week 1.

It's surprising Williams isn't active. Youboty and Bowen being on the bench makes Buffalo thin in the secondary.
