Texans promoted OLB Jesse Nading from the practice squad.
Converting from base, 4-3 end to 3-4 outside linebacker, Nading showed well in the preseason with nine tackles, a sack, and a forced fumble.

Texans waived LB Jesse Nading.

Converting from defensive end to outside linebacker, Nading's nine preseason tackles plus a sack and forced fumble weren't enough to keep him safe from a numbers game. Still only 26, Nading is likely to resurface elsewhere soon.

The Texans have moved Jesse Nading from end to outside linebacker in their new 3-4 defense.

We hope they're not planning to start him. Nading, to some extent, looks the part of a 3-4 rush linebacker at 6'5/260, but the former undrafted free agent has 0.5 sacks in 208 career snaps. Along with nose tackle and defensive back, outside linebacker is a huge need area for the transitioning Texans.

Texans placed DE Jesse Nading (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Nading injured his knee nearly two months ago, and the Texans have been carrying him as a game-day inactive. He registered 10 tackles in five games this season. Nading will have to compete for a roster spot next year.

Texans DE Jesse Nading recorded his first career sack last Sunday against Colts QB Peyton Manning.

Nading will compete with recently signed DEs Adewale Ogunleye and Ryan Denney to fill injured Connor Barwin's shoes. None of the three are IDP relevant.

Texans DE Jess Nading is day-to-day after spraining a knee ligament against the Packers Sunday.

Nading has played fairly well for the Texans since being elevated from the practice squad, but Gary Kubiak seemed to think the injury could potentially keep him out this week.
