Colts make moves at running back

Texans make roster moves


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/24/2013) The Texans put cornerback Johnathan Joseph (toe) and running back Deji Karim (clavicle) on injured reserve and signed running backs Ray Graham and Toben Opurum.

Texans dealing with injuries to top players


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/23/2013) A toe injury will keep Texans cornerback Johnathan Joseph from playing in the season finale at Tennessee. Running back Deji Karim (clavicle) will also be out while fellow back Dennis Johnson (hip) might miss the game as well.

Deji Karim has 30 rushing yards


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) Texans running back Deji Karim carried the ball eight times for a team-high 30 rushing yards in Sunday's 37-13 loss to the Broncos. Karim also caught one pass for -1 yards. 

With Dennis Johnson not finding a rhythm -- and possibly dealing with an injury -- Karim became the preferred back in the second half. He looked solid in the offense, and had a long run called back for a holding penalty, so his numbers could have looked slightly better. 

Since he is a Texans running back, though, Karim did find himself limping off the field and into the locker room as the game came to a close. He was replaced by Jonathan Grimes. 

The Texans face the Titans in Week 17. 


Dennis Johnson among fringe contributors


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2013) The Texans got small contributions from running back Dennis Johnson, running back Deji Karim and wide receiver Keshawn Martin in a blowout loss Week 15 at Indianapolis.

Johnson -- the most notable of the three -- spelled starter Ben Tate throughout the contest, finishing with four carries for 12 yards and one catch for 3. Karim came in later, when the outcome was already decided, finishing with four carries 21 yards.

Martin, who scored a touchdown on four catches last week, had one catch for 13 yards. He's up to 17 catches for the season.


Texans announce Week 9 inactives


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2013) The Texans listed seven players as inactive for their game against Indianapolis: running backs Ray Graham and Deji Karim, quarterback T.J. Yates, defensive end Tim Jamison, guard Cody White, offensive tackle Andrew Gardner and linebacker Jeff Tarpinian.

Texans coach 'very worried' about RB situation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2013) Texans coach Gary Kubiak said Monday injured running backs Arian Foster (hamstring) and Ben Tate (ribs) did not practice Monday as the team is coming off a Week 8 bye. Kubiak added he's "very worried about the running back situation," which is why he said Dennis Johnson, Deji Karim and Ray Graham were all signed to the active roster.

Johnson, Karim and Graham all practiced Monday, while Foster and Tate sat out. Tate said he thinks he will be able to play Week 9 against the Colts, according to ESPN.


Texans make final roster moves before start of season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/31/2013) The Texans finalized their 53-man roster Saturday by placing receiver Alan Bonner (hamstring), tackle Brennan Williams (knee), and linebacker Trevardo Williams (knee) on injured reserve. Houston also released defensive lineman Daniel Muir, defensive tackle David Hunter and receiver Michael Smith with an injury settlement.

In addition, the Texans waived the following 18 players from the roster: defensive end Keith Browner, tight end Jake Byrne, cornerback Roc Carmichael, fullback Tyler Clutts, linebacker Cameron Collins, receiver Andy Cruse, offensive lineman Tyler Horn, defensive end Delano Johnson, running back Dennis Johnson, safety Orhian Johnson, defensive tackle Chris Jones, running back Deji Karim, offensive lineman Alex Kupper, cornerback Elbert Mack, tackle Nate Menkin, linebacker Mike Mohamed, receiver Uzoma Nwachukwu and safety Jawanza Starling.

Deji Karim looking at larger role


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2013) The Texans plan to give reserve running back Deji Karim a larger role in the team's second preseason game Saturday against the Dolphins, as they try to figure out the depth chart behind Arian Foster and Ben Tate.  

"I'll just say that (No.) 39 is really practicing well," head coach Gary Kubiak told the Houston Chronicle Wednesday. "We want to see him more this week and obviously want to continue to see Dennis (Johnson) and Cierre (Wood), and (Ray) Graham comes in and does a good job. I think one of the things about this week is we want to see 39, Deji, play a little bit more and we want to take a look at him."

Karim is in his fourth NFL season, having rushed for 290 yards on 98 carries between Jacksonville and Indianapolis.
