 HOUSTON (AP) - The Houston Texans have cut return specialist Trindon Holliday and signed linebacker Barrett Rudd in the wake of Brian Cushing's season-ending injury.
Cushing tore his left anterior cruciate ligament in Monday night's 23-17 win over the New York Jets. The 6-foot-2, 242-pound Ruud was a second-round draft pick by Tampa Bay in 2005. He was cut by New Orleans on Monday.
The Texans (5-0) play Green Bay (2-3) on Sunday.
The 5-foot-5 Holliday won a roster spot after returning three kicks for touchdowns in the preseason. But Houston ranks last in kickoff return average (17.6 yards) and 16th in punt return average (9.2 yards). Coach Gary Kubiak says rookie Keshawn Martin will return punts and kickoffs, an area where he excelled at Michigan State.
