Texans Bring Back Troy Nolan

According to the Houston Chronicle’s John McClain, the Texans have brought back safety Troy Nolan to join the team. Nolan will take the place of recently injured safety Quintin Demps, who broke his forearm against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

In a surprise move, Nolan was waived after training camp in favor of Shiloh Keo and Demps, who are still on the team. He was soon claimed by the Miami Dolphins prior to week one, and has appeared in three games for the Dolphins in 2012, but only played three snaps all season.

In 2011, Nolan served as the team’s third safety in dime situations, and late in the season he was hampered by an ankle issue that held him out of a couple of games. This seemed like the easiest move for the Texans with Nolan’s familiarity of the defense and his ability to step right in a play.

The actual move has not been confirmed by the team but there will have to be a corresponding move to fit Nolan on the 53 man roster.
