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 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.
