Aug. 4 (UPI) -- The Houston Texans placed third-year running back D'Onta Foreman on waivers, the team announced Sunday.
Foreman ran for 327 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie before tearing his Achilles in November 2017. He earned -1 yards on seven carries last season.
Houston signed free agent linebacker Gimel President in a corresponding move.
Foreman ran for 2,774 yards and 20 touchdowns at the University of Texas from 2014 to 2016. He posted a 2,028-yard, 15-rushing touchdown season as a junior in 2016.
Houston selected him with the No. 89 overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft.
O'Brien cited veteran running back Taiwan Jones and second-year back Buddy Howell as examples. Jones has 44 carries for 183 yards since entering the league in 2011 and none in the last two seasons.
Howell did not have a carry last season. He ran for 2,419 yards and 22 touchdowns at Florida Atlantic University from 2014 to 2017.
