Texans Host Workout With Free Agent RB Kenneth Dixon

The Texans worked out free agent running back Kenneth Dixon this week.

Dixon was drafted in the fourth-round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Ravens and flashed enough to where the thought was he would lead the team’s backfield.

However, injuries along with off-the-field issues, halted his career. He was suspended for four games in 2017 due to a PED violation and returned, only to suffer a torn meniscus and sit out the rest of the year. Last year, a knee injury got him placed on injured reserve.

He fractured his kneecap during the 2019 preseason and the Ravens released him on an injury settlement. He’ll try to find a new team now that he’s apparently healthy as the Jets hosted him last week.

The Texans run game has been good, despite losing Lamar Miller in the preseason with Carlos Hyde leading the way. Dixon could catch on at age 25 and have a chance to continue his once promising career.
