Houston Texans' 5 Veterans Who Could Be Camp Casualties
USA TODAY Sports

The Houston Texans are only into the first week of training camp, and already the revolving door is spinning away. Players are coming and going in an effort to assemble a roster capable of reversing the misfortunes of last year.

Alan Bonner, thought by many to be a comer at slot receiver, broke his foot and was released. Cody White, a possible backup on a thin offensive line, tore his Achilles tendon and was also let go.

Tyson Clabo, a five-year starter at right tackle for the Atlanta Falcons, was signed to push Derek Newton and bolster the position. Nose tackle David Hunter, who was on the Texans practice squad in 2012, was invited back to fill in for the injured Louis Nix III.

These are just a few of the transactions that have occurred over the last 10 days. If this was a theatrical production, it could be said that all this activity involved understudies. They are just a preview of bigger changes to come for some actual members of the cast.

There are a half-dozen veterans whose hold on their roster spot could be described as precarious. On a more experienced team, there would be more, but 50 of the 91 names listed on the Texans website are either rookies or in their second year. These five stand a chance of being on the waiver wire instead of the 53-man roster once the final cut-downs are made.
