HOUSTON (AP) The Houston Texans have released veteran wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, whose 2018 season ended prematurely when he tore his left Achilles tendon.
Thomas played seven games for Houston last season, making 23 receptions for 275 yards and two touchdowns. He was acquired in October from Denver for a fourth-round draft pick to fill in after Will Fuller tore a knee ligament. The Texans and Broncos also switched seventh-round selections for this year's draft.
Thomas talked about his future the day after Houston's season ended with a loss to the Colts in the wild-card game last month and said he hopes to play again after he recovers from his injury.
