Texans waive WR Anthony Miller .
The Texans traded for Miller over the summer by sending a 2022 fifth-round pick to the Bears. Since then, he’s seen time in two games for Houston, notching five grabs for 23 yards with a touchdown. The bulk of that came against the Panthers in Week 3. He was hardly a factor as the Texans got drummed 40-0 by the Bills this past week. Miller, the No. 51 overall pick in 2018, flashed potential at times but fell flat in 2020 — he had 49 catches for just 485 yards despite playing all 16 games. Some say that shoulder issues limited him in Chicago.
