The Houston Texans have made several changes to their backfield this season and it's possible another move is on the horizon. On Tuesday, the team brought in a veteran running back for a workout.

Houston lost Lamar Miller in the preseason to a season-ending knee injury. In an effort to fill that void, the front office made a trade for Carlos Hyde.

Prior to the trade for Hyde, the Texans acquired Duke Johnson from the Cleveland Browns for a 2020 fourth-round pick. Now, the AFC South squad is looking to add another tailback to its roster.

According to NFL Network insider Tom Pelissero, the Texans are working out C.J. Anderson this afternoon.

Anderson had 16 carries for 43 rushing yards in two games with the Detroit Lions. He was released prior to the team's third game of the season.

There's always a chance that Houston decides to look at other options at running back. Nonetheless, Anderson has proven before that he can be a quality contributor to a contending roster.

Last year, the Los Angeles Rams made their Super Bowl run because of Anderson's heroics on the ground.

We should find out in the near future if the Texans will add Anderson to their backfield.
