News: McKnight will be brought into Houston's training camp Wednesday for an audition, the Houston Chronicle reports. The Texans have to think about replacing Arian Foster, who is expected to be placed on short-term injured reserve and miss multiple games with a groin injury.
Impact: Joining McKnight on Wednesday will be running backs Ben Malena and Pierre Thomas. McKnight did not play at all in 2013 and was limited to two games with Kansas City in 2014 before an Achilles injury forced him to injured reserve. Of the three backs, the team is most interested in Thomas.
