Inks contract

Schreck signed a reserve/future deal with the Texans on Tuesday.

Analysis: Schreck spent his first four seasons with Chicago beore landing in Houston during the offseason. Although he did not earn a spot on the Texans' 53-man roster during training camp, he did sign to their practice squad and ultimately saw action in two regular-season games. The 29-year-old recorded six yards on two receptions during that time. He will look to make an impression with the team during the offseason and potentially earn a bigger role in 2023.

Reverts to Houston's practice squad

Schreck reverted to the Texans' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Analysis: Schreck played 10 offensive snaps in Houston's Week 15 overtime loss to the Chiefs. That usage ranked a distant third behind Teagan Quitoriano (51) snaps and Jordan Akins (30 snaps) among Texans tight ends, and Schreck unsurprisingly wasn't targeted.

Will be available vs. Kansas City

Houston elevated Schreck from its practice squad to the active roster Saturday ahead of Sunday's game versus the Chiefs.

Analysis: With Schreck in the mix, the Texans will have five tight ends available in Week 15. The 27 year old has two receptions for six yards on two targets through two games in 2022.

Returns to practice squad

Schreck reverted to the Texans' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Analysis: Schreck was elevated from the practice squad for the second game in a row Sunday, as starting tight end Brevin Jordan (ankle) remained sidelined against Jacksonville. As a result, the 28-year-old played the second most offensive snaps (24) amongst the Texans' tight ends behind O.J. Howard and ahead of Jordan Akins in Week 5. Schreck will now be eligible for one more gamed-day activation while on Houston's practice squad this season.

Elevated for Week 5

The Texans elevated Schreck on Saturday from their practice squad to their active roster for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Analysis: With Brevin Jordan (ankle) still out, Schreck will get another look on the active roster after catching his only target for zero yards during his season debut in Week 4. The fifth-year tight end figures to garner a similar role operating behind O.J. Howard and Jordan Akins against Jacksonville in Week 5.

Lands back on practice squad

Schreck reverted to the Texans' practice squad Monday, Aaron Wilson of reports.

Analysis: Schreck was elevated from Houston's practice squad for the first time this season after signing with the team in late August. With Pharaoh Brown (hip/shoulder) and Brevin Jordan (ankle) both inactive Week 4, the 28-year-old played 19 of his team's 57 offensive snaps behind tight ends O.J. Howard and Jordan Akins. Schreck ultimately hauled in his lone target for zero yards, and he will be eligible for two more gamed-day activations while with the Texans this season.

Elevated by Texans

Houston elevated Schreck to the active roster from the practice squad Saturday.

Analysis: Schreck will get a chance to make his season debut during Sunday's game against the Chargers. The Texans also elevated Jordan Akins for Week 4, with the context of Brevin Jordan (ankle) already being ruled out and Pharaoh Brown (hip) still listed as questionable.

Signs with Texans' practice squad

The Texans signed Schreck to their practice squad Wednesday.

Analysis: Schreck spent most of the offeseason with the Texans but was unable to earn a spot on the 53-man roster. After spending most of last season on the Bengals' practice squad, he'll attempt to carve out a role as part of Houston's practice squad.

Aug 31, 2022 4:48 PM EST

Cut Tuesday

Schreck was released by the Texans on Tuesday.

Analysis: Schreck signed with Houston in June after spending the majority of last year on Cincinnati's practice squad. The 28-year-old ultimately played five special-teams snaps during his lone gameday elevation in 2021, and he will now likely attract interest from teams in need of similar reserve depth this regular season.

Scores game-winning TD

Schreck caught both of his targets for 13 yards, including an 8-yard touchdown, in Friday's preseason win over the Rams.

Analysis: Schreck snagged a throw along the back edge of the end zone for Houston's game-winning score with just over a minute left in the game. That Schreck was on the field in the final minutes is an indication he's not in line for the team's final roster. Houston has three incumbents at tight end and drafted a fourth in the fifth round of the 2022 draft, so Schreck will need factors beyond his control to move up the depth chart.

Aug 20, 2022 6:41 AM EST

Signs with Houston

The Texans signed Schreck (ankle) on Friday.

Analysis: Schreck appeared in one game -- Week 11 against the Raiders -- with the Bengals last season before suffering a season-ending ankle injury. Now healthy, the 2017 seventh-round pick will look to compete for a roster spot in Houston. Schreck has appeared in 23 career games, but he's yet to catch a pass in the NFL.

Jun 10, 2022 12:46 PM EST

Lands on injured list

Schreck (ankle) was placed on the Bengals' practice squad injured list Tuesday.

Analysis: Schreck will not be eligible to practice with the team for the next three weeks, which could leave him done for the season. The four-year veteran has appeared in one game this season for the Bengals, in Week 11 against the Raiders, after having appeared in 14 games in 2020.

Jan 4, 2022 2:05 PM EST

Reverts to practice squad

Schreck has reverted back to the Bengals' practice squad per the NFL's transaction report.

Analysis: Schreck was elevated to the the active roster ahead of Sunday's victory over the Raiders. He ultimately saw five snaps on special teams and failed to record any statistics. He suited up for 14 games in 2020, but this was his action of the season.

Nov 22, 2021 6:36 PM EST

Elevated to active roster

Schreck was elevated from the Bengals' practice squad ahead of Sunday's game against the Raiders, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Analysis: Schreck has yet to make his season debut but will be available as depth at tight end after Mitchell Wilcox (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday. The 28-year-old has been targeted just once across the last three seasons.

Nov 20, 2021 3:47 PM EST

Cut by Cincinnati

The Bengals released Schreck on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Schreck, who was selected in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft by Cincinnati, could be a candidate for the practice squad. He appeared in 14 games last season, and failed to secure his lone target.

Aug 31, 2021 11:37 AM EST

Stays on practice squad

Schreck cleared waivers Sunday and signed with the Bengals' practice squad, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Analysis: Schreck played in eight games for the Bengals over the past two seasons but was never targeted. The 2017 seventh-round pick coulnd't beat out Drew Sample or Cethan Carter for a depth role behind C.J. Uzomah, so he'll look to fine-tune his craft on the practice roster.

Sep 9, 2020 6:45 PM EST

Fails to make final cut

Schreck was waived by the Bengals on Saturday, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Schreck saw action in two games for the Bengals in 2019, failing to secure a fantasy-relevant stat while adding 19 special team's snaps. He'll likely look for a depth role or practice squad spot elsewhere around the league, as the Bengals will roll with C.J. Uzomah, Drew Sample and Cethan Carter at tight end to start 2020.

Sep 6, 2020 9:16 AM EST

Reserve role in 2019

Schreck played four snaps on offense across two regular-season contests with the Bengals in 2019.

Analysis: Schreck spent the first 11 games of the season on Cincinnati's practice squad, and he was confined to a reserve role upon joining the 53-man roster. The Bengals originally drafted Schreck in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft, so he'll likely continue to be viewed as a developmental project heading into 2020.

Jan 24, 2020 9:30 AM EST

Signed off practice squad

Schreck was promoted to the Bengals' active roster Saturday.

Analysis: Until now, Schreck has spent the entire season on the Bengals' practice squad. He was originally drafted in the seventh-round by the team in 2017. He is now set to help provide depth at tight end, while also presumably contributing on special teams.

Nov 30, 2019 9:33 AM EST

Lands on IR

Schreck (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Analysis: Schreck's placement on IR effectively ends his 2018 campaign. The second-year vet has endured several knee injuries through the early portion of his career so it remains to be seen what kind of toll, if any, the latest will have on him moving forward. In a corresponding move, the Bengals promoted tight end Jordan Franks to replace Schreck.
