The Houston Texans are making a surprising roster cut this Tuesday. 

According to multiple reports, the AFC South franchise is releasing veteran tight end Pharaoh Brown. 

All off-season Brown was targeted as a breakout player for the Texans. Through four games he actually leads all Houston tight ends with seven catches for 72 yards. 

However, the Texans are now moving on. Brown missed the team's Week 4 game with injuries, so it's possible it is injury-related.

"The Houston Texans released starting tight end Pharaoh Brown, who led the team's tight ends in catches (seven) and yards (72), sources confirmed to ESPN," said DJ Bien-Aime, via

Unfortunately injuries have played a big impact on Pharaoh Brown's football career. As a tight end at the University of Oregon, Brown suffered a devastating knee injury during his collegiate career. He was able to work his way back into a role in the NFL. 

Hopefully Brown gets another opportunity. Talent has never been a question for the former Oregon star. 

The Texans, meanwhile, play the Jaguars on Sunday.
