The Houston Texans cut veteran linebacker Tavares Gooden with a left squad designation.
A former Baltimore Ravens third-round draft pick from the University of Miami, Gooden played in one game for the Texans and recorded no tackles.
He has also played for the San Francisco 49ers.
The Teans promoted cornerback Josh Victorian from the practice squad to the active roster.
