Crockett inked a reserve/futures contract with the Packers on Tuesday.
Analysis: Crockett ended the season on the Packers' practice squad, and as evidenced by this news, made a good enough impression to start next season on the 90-man roster. The undrafted player out of Missouri is still looking to make his NFL debut.
Crockett was signed to the Packers' practice squad Wednesday.
Analysis: Crockett was let go from the Raiders' practice squad Monday, which is coincidentally the Packers upcoming opponent. The 21-year-old went undrafted out of Missouri in April and is still looking to make his NFL debut.
The Raiders cut Crockett from the practice squad Monday, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Crockett will look to earn a chance elsewhere in the league. The undrafted rookie out of Missouri had a solid preseason showing with the Texans, and he could offer upside on special teams.
Crockett signed with the Raiders' practice squad on Sunday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Analysis: Crockett had a solid preseason showing with the Texans -- 24 carries for 97 yards -- but didn't end up making the 53-man roster. The 21-year-old opted to forgo his senior season at Missouri and was not selected in April's draft.
Houston waived Crockett on Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Analysis: Crockett impressed in preseason, showing power and burst in the open field, but it seemingly wasn't enough to earn a roster spot. To make matters more difficult on the 21-year-old, the Texans traded for fellow running back Carlos Hyde on Saturday to help in the absence of Lamar Miller, who will miss the season with a knee injury. Crockett will now have to go look for another opportunity elsewhere.
Crockett rushed three times for 27 yards and caught his lone target for five yards in Saturday's 34-0 loss to the Cowboys in preseason Week 3.
Analysis: Houston's running backs take on a greater focus in the wake of the knee injury Lamar Miller suffered on the Texans' second play of the game. Crockett busted off runs of 15 and 11 yards, showing significant burst in the backfield. The early indication is that Miller's suffered a significant knee injury and could miss the entire season. That means Duke Johnson is expected to serve as the top back, leaving a host of lesser-known backs vying for the backup spots.
Crockett rushed six times for 24 yards and a touchdown but wasn't targeted in the passing game during Thursday's preseason opener in Green Bay.
Analysis: Crockett converted a one-yard touchdown in the second quarter. The undrafted running back out of Missouri will have a chance to make his case for a roster spot during the preseason, but the hill he has to climb to stick with Houston got even higher after the Texans traded for Duke Johnson earlier in the day.
Following the release of Houston's previous No. 2 back D'Onta Foreman, Crockett is competing for backup slotting behind Lamar Miller, Aaron Reiss of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: The Texans could look to bolster their backfield depth either via free agency or a trade, but for now there's a wide open competition for the team's top backup job. Per Reiss, Crockett -- who had been splitting carries in goal-line drills with Foreman -- "has positioned himself as the current roster's most natural replacement for the role Foreman could've had." At 5-foot-11, 225 pounds, Crockett has the build to handle a short-yardage role, though ultimately the key to him being able to land a role with Houston could rest in his ability to carve out special-teams utility.
