The Houston Texans will try out wide receiver Mike Sims-Walker and running back Justin Forsett on Wednesday.

The Houston Texans are trying to find another wide receiver to compliment All Pro receiver Andre Johnson on their offense and depth at the running back position behind Arian Foster and Ben Tate. The Texans will work out one player at each position on Wednesday, according to a report by ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Sims-Walker flashed some ability as a receiver with the Jacksonville Jaguars after being a third-round draft pick, but could never stay healthy or consistent. Sims-Walker signed with the St. Louis Rams last offseason but never fit in with their offense and was released, only to be re-signed by the Jaguars before tearing his ACL.

Justin Forsett stuck with the Seattle Seahawks for a while and was supposed to be an explosive change of pace back, but could never break out. Forsett has flashed some ability to catch the ball out of the backfield and return kicks in his NFL career.
