HOUSTON (CBS Houston) – Texans return specialist Trindon Holliday had a spectacular preseason but hasn’t done much since the regular season began. The Texans have released him.

“I’m very concerned, special teams-wise,” coach Gary Kubiak said during his Monday news conference. “We’re dead last in kickoff return at this point; we didn’t get a ball past the 20 (Monday) night.”

Holliday (5-5, 169) , who was selected by the Texans in the sixth round of the 2010 draft, has returned 19 punts in five games this season for 147 yards, an average of 9.2 yards per punt return. He’s returned 10 kicks for 194 yards, an average of 19.4 yards per kickoff return.

For the Texans, this is not good enough.

“Me and (Special Teams Coordinator) Joe (Marciano) spent a lot of time looking at it,” Kubiak said. “We’ve got to address it. It’s going to cost us at some point, and we’ve been fortunate, but it’s not good enough right now for us to continue to be successful. It’s going to catch up with us, so we’ve got to figure out a way to get better.”

Rookie receiver Keshawn Martin will replace Holliday as kickoff and punt returner.

Other roster moves

The Texans have signed linebacker Barrett Ruud and guard Cody White from the practice squad. They’ve place injured linebacker Brian Cushing on injured reserve.

The Texans now have one available practice squad spot, which is expected to be filled soon.
