The Texans desperately need healthy bodies in their defensive backfield, and former University of Houston cornerback Stanford Routt has been looking for a place to play.

On Tuesday, the Texans moved to sign Routt in advance of the Monday night trip to New England. Routt's a 7-year NFL veteran with some speed, but he's also been cut twice recently by Oakland and Kansas City.

Reports say Routt missed curfew and tangled with coaches in Kansas City.
