    The Texans announced all their roster moves Martin Frk Jersey , reducing their roster to 53 players Saturday. Most already were reported, including punter Shane Lechler‘s release.

    Houston also released fullback Jay Prosch and quarterback Joe Webb III.

    The Texans waived 27 players: outside linebacker Davin Bellamy, receiver Quan Bray, safety Ibraheim Campbell, cornerback Andre Chachere, running back Lavon Coleman, offensive lineman Anthony Coyle, safety Treston Decoud, offensive lineman Kyle Fuller, offensive guard Mason Gentry, inside linebacker Kennan Gilchrist, offensive tackle Roderick Johnson Jake Dotchin Jersey , cornerback Bryce Jones, offensive tackle Jaryd Jones-Smith, outside linebacker Ufomba Kamalu, inside linebacker Josh Keyes, nose tackle Darius Kilgo, tight end Matt Lengel, receiver Braxton Miller, safety Corey Moore, nose tackle Kingsley Opara, offensive guard David Quessenberry, kicker Nick Rose, offensive lineman Chad Slade Authentic Nick Nelson Jersey , running back Terry Swanson, defensive end Nick Thurman, cornerback Dee Virgin and receiver Jester Weah.

    Tight end Jevoni Robinson was waived with an injury designation, and tight end Stephen Anderson and outside linebacker LaTroy Lewis were waived with injury settlements. Houston also waived cornerback Josh Thornton from its injured reserve list with a settlement.

    Running back D'Onta Foreman will begin the season on the physically unable to perform list, keeping him out at least the first six games.

    Safety Andre Hal, who is undergoing cancer treatments, will spend the season on the non-football illness list.

    The Chicago Bears came into the season believing they were ready to start returning the favor after taking their lumps in recent years.

     

    The gut punch they absorbed in last week's primetime opener? That's one they didn't envision.

    The Bears will be back under the lights again, looking to pick themselves up against Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks on Monday night in a matchup between teams that blew fourth-quarter leads last week.

    With four straight last-place finishes in the NFC North but a surge in optimism following a busy offseason, the Bears seemed poised to knock off Green Bay at Lambeau Field, only to lose 24-23 to their rivals. Newcomer Khalil Mack led a dominant defense as the Bears built a 20-0 lead. But a hobbled Aaron Rodgers threw three touchdown passes in the second half to spoil Matt Nagy's debut as Chicago's coach.

    "That kind of makes it tougher, too, because you know how much you put into it and how close you came http://www.giantsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-saquon-barkley-jersey ," guard Kyle Long said. "It was in reach, well within reach. But at the end of the day, you've got to move on."

    The same goes for Seattle, a 27-24 loser at Denver last week. The Seahawks grabbed a four-point lead early in the fourth quarter, gave up a touchdown on the Broncos' next drive and gained 3 yards in their final three possessions.

    "It was really an enormous missed opportunity for us to do something special and get that win," coach Pete Carroll said.

    Here are some things to know as the Bears and Seahawks eye their first wins:

    NEW ADDITION

    Mack makes his first appearance at Soldier Field as a member of the Bears. And if he performs the way he did last week, Chicago will certainly take it.

    The two-time All-Pro came through with a strip-sack that led to a turnover and a 27-yard interception return for a touchdown against backup quarterback DeShone Kizer. He also had pressure in the backfield on the play when Rodgers injured his left knee.

    This will be the second game for Mack at Soldier Field. With the Raiders in October 2015, he sacked Jay Cutler on the final drive. But Robbie Gould kicked a 49-yard field goal in the closing seconds to give the Bears a 22-20 victory over the Raiders and their first win under former coach John Fox.

    SAFETY VALVE

    Doug Baldwin has been the player Wilson has looked to for help in key situations throughout their careers together. Baldwin is expected to miss at least a couple of weeks after suffering an MCL injury in his right knee in the opener. Wilson must find another go-to option in the passing game.

    It could be veteran Brandon Marshall, who caught three passes including a touchdown in the opener . It could be Tyler Lockett, who also had a touchdown catch against the Broncos. Or it could be rookie tight end Will Dissly, who had three catches for 105 yards and a touchdown in the opener.

    "It's hard to tackle a guy that weighs 270 pounds running down the field. Big catches too, good tough catches Paul Hornung Jersey ," Carroll said of Dissly. "He showed us that he's got really good hands."

    BEHIND CENTER

    Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky had a shaky opener.

    The No. 2 overall draft pick last year, he missed a throw on a fade pattern to a wide-open Allen Robinson in the end zone and was too quick to scramble rather than stay in the pocket at times. He also couldn't move the Bears past midfield, let alone into field goal range, in the closing minutes after Green Bay scored the go-ahead touchdown.

    Trubisky finished 23 of 35 for 171 yards and a 77.2 passer rating.

    SACK ATTACK

    Seattle gave up six sacks in the opener, but at least half of those could be blamed on Wilson not trusting his protection and running into trouble. It made for a challenging game to assess the performance of an offensive line that has regularly been an issue the past few seasons.

    Carroll said he was mostly pleased with the protections, but knows the challenge doesn't get any easier going from Denver's pass rush led by Von Miller to Chicago's rush now led by Mack.

    SECOND IMPRESSION

    Nagy acknowledged he needs to improve on his first game as a head coach. He second-guessed his own play calls, most notably two ill-advised screen passes, and acknowledged he is still growing into the role. Nagy replaced the fired Fox after spending a decade working under Andy Reid in Philadelphia and Kansas City.

    "I wasn't in my exact rhythm that I could have been in," he said. "There's different reasons for that. For me, I just feel like that's my job. I've got to do that. I've got to be better."
