Texans Waive Kellen Clemens

A week after signing veteran Jake Delhomme, and two days after fifth-round pick T.J. Yates won his first NFL start, the Texans have waived quarterback Kellen Clemens, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Clemens was signed to a one-year contract after the team lost quarterback Matt Schaub to a season-ending foot injury. The former second-round pick out of Oregon was inactive when Matt Leinart was lost to a broken collarbone, which prompted the signing of Delhomme last week.

Inactive for a second consecutive week, the Texans got a steady performance from Yates and, according to McClain, are going to sign 41-year-old Jeff Garcia to be the No. 3 behind Yates and Delhomme. For his two weeks on the 53-man roster, Clemens earned nearly $81,000 in pretax income.

The Texans also placed rookie punter Brett Hartmann on injured reserve.
