Texans claim OT Johnson off waivers from Browns

A fifth-round pick out of Florida State in 2017, Johnson didn't see the field in the regular season with Cleveland, spending his entire rookie campaign on injured reserve with a sprained medial collateral ligament and meniscus damage in his knee.

A day after he was waived by the Cleveland Browns, offensive tackle Roderick Johnson was claimed by Houston, the Texans announced on Wednesday.

A fifth-round pick out of Florida State in 2017, Johnson didn't see the field in the regular season with Cleveland, spending his entire rookie campaign on injured reserve with a sprained medial collateral ligament and meniscus damage in his knee.

Johnson, 22, did play in all four preseason games last year, starting two.

The Browns waived him on Tuesday to make room for Greg Robinson, the No. 2 overall pick in 2014 who flamed out with the St. Louis/Los Angeles Rams and was waived midseason last year by the Detroit Lions.

Houston has one of the league's least proven tackle situations. After starting four games as a rookie, 2017 fourth-round pick Julien Davenport is penciled in at left tackle, and free agent signee Seantrel Henderson -- who has started one game since 2015 -- is expected to man the right side. The Texans also drafted Martinas Rankin in the third round of April's draft, but some have projected him to move to guard or center.

To make room for Johnson on the 90-man roster, the Texans waived tackle Kendall Calhoun, an undrafted rookie out of Cincinnati.
