Steve Slaton (hamstring) remains sidelined at Texans camp.
Slaton has been watching for more than a week now as Ben Tate surges ahead of him on the depth chart. As the fourth running back behind Arian Foster, Tate and Derrick Ward, Slaton is firmly on the roster bubble. He could be a nice pickup for a team like the Cardinals that is in search of a third-down back.
If he's cut, I'd love to see Denver put a claim in for him. I think it's an upgrade over Lance Ball and would give the Broncos speed element that has been lacking from the backfield for the past 3 seasons.
