The Houston Texans have placed FB Brad Smelley (back, calf) and TE Garrett Graham (hamstring) on Injured Reserve. The team also signed practice squad RB Chad Spann and TE Phillip Supernaw to their active roster. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Still keep an eye on Spann in super deep dynasty leagues. However, we like the stock of rookie Ray Graham better. We'll see Jonathan Grimes as the starting running back for the Texans in Week 17.

  Browns | Two return    Sun Aug 11, 04:25 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Montario Hardesty (hamstring) and TE Brad Smelley (hamstring) returned to practice Sunday, Aug. 11.

Footballguys view: Hardesty needs to get back on the practice field and impress. Some think he's on the roster bubble as Dion Lewis could win the primary backup job behind Trent Richardson.

  Browns | Chris Ogbonnaya to be used as FB?    Tue Jul 23, 07:40 PM

Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Norv Turner used RB Chris Ogbonnaya as a fullback in two-back sets during offseason workouts, but said the team is likely to keep a traditional fullback in the offense. When asked if Ogbonnaya, a tailback, can fill that role, Turner said, 'He can do some of it.' It appears FBs Owen Marecic and Brad Smelley will be fighting for one roster spot.

Footballguys view: "Silent G" is certainly capable of lining up at fullback if need be. He's a good inside runner and decent receiver out of the backfield.

  Browns | Owen Marecic expected to be on bubble    Thu Jul 18, 08:06 PM

  Browns | Backup tight end position deep    Tue May 28, 07:51 PM

The Cleveland Browns have TEs Gary Barnidge, Kellen Davis and Brad Smelley behind projected starter Jordan Cameron on the roster. Barnidge has done a good job of blocking, as has Davis, while Smelley could find a role as a H-back because of his receiving ability.
