The Houston Texans re-signed Chris Conley to their practice squad Monday — after releasing the wide receiver twice last week — and released running back Marlon Mack.

Conley, 29, was first released Tuesday, cutdown day for teams to reach their 53-man limit. He was re-signed Thursday but then cut again Friday to make room for tight end O.J. Howard on the active roster.

He’s now part of the Texans’ 16-man practice squad.

Conley caught 22 passes for 323 yards and two touchdowns in 16 games (10 starts) for the Texans in 2021. He has 15 career TDs in 100 games (62 starts) for the Kansas City Chiefs, Jacksonville Jaguars and Texans.

Mack, 26, was cut but then re-signed to the practice squad. He’s now a free agent again.

Mack ran for a career-best 1,091 yards with eight touchdowns in 2019 with the Indianapolis Colts. He has rushed for 2,484 career yards and 20 touchdowns in 47 games (23 starts) for the Colts. He also has 57 career receptions for 448 yards and two scores.
