Dameon Pierce, RB (HOU)

Listed third on depth chart

Pierce is listed third on the Texan's unofficial depth chart for Saturday's preseason opener against the Saints, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Pierce is listed third behind co-leaders Marlin Mack and Rex Burkhead. The rookie fourth-round pick out of Florida has impressed during drills in camp, but the Texans are anxious to see how he performs in pads against opponents in a game situation. Pierce could eventually move into a more prominent role and was known as a touchdown maker for the Gators.
