Texans make three roster moves

Posted by Nick Scurfield on December 7, 2010 – 3:48 pm

The Texans have placed defensive end Jesse Nading on injured reserve, signed safety Quentin Demps and re-signed defensive tackle Malcolm Sheppard to their practice squad.

Demps (5-11, 206) was a fourth-round pick out of UTEP by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2008. He had 12 tackles, one sack and one interception in two seasons with the Eagles and returned kickoffs as a rookie, averaging 25.3 yards per return with one touchdown.

A San Antonio native, Demps played for the Hartford Colonials of the United Football League in 2010. He returned an interception 73 yards for a touchdown in the Colonials’ season finale on Nov. 20.

Nading had not played since injuring his left knee against the New York Giants in Week 5. He finished his second season out of Colorado State with nine tackles and 0.5 sacks in five games.

Sheppard was on the Texans’ practice squad earlier this season before being promoted to the active roster on Oct. 25. An undrafted rookie from Arkansas, he appeared in one game and was waived on Nov. 30.
