Katy's McClelland to miss two games, stripped of captain status

McClelland will miss games against Morton Ranch and Seven Lakes.

Originally Appeared on VYPE

Bronson McClelland will miss the next two games and has been removed as one of the captains for the Katy football team effective immediately.

Not because of injury but due to video surfacing after a 35-30 victory over Tompkins of him using a derogatory racial slur. The video was made on SnapChat, was recorded on the screen and reposted on Twitter.

The original Twitter post by Tompkins player Tunmise Adeleye that had a recording of the Snapchat video was removed by Friday morning but had already gained traction on social media by midnight.

On Friday, McClelland took to social media to issue a statement.

"After last night's win over the Tompkins Falcons, I made comments on social media that were not appropriate under any circumstances," McClelland wrote. "Being in a leadership role, I put my family, teammates, coaches, school and community in a bad light."

One of the big factors that led to the Texans' loss to the Jaguars on Sunday was the secondary. Multiple flags for pass interference gave Jacksonville more opportunities to pick up first downs and score points.

So it's no surprise that DeMeco Ryans is making some changes to his defense this week. According to several reports, Texans corner Shaq Griffin has been cut.

Nickel corner Tavierre Thomas was flagged for PI more than once on Sunday, and was burned badly by Jaguars receiver Calvin Ridley for a touchdown.

DeMeco was asked after the game if he considered replacing Thomas with Desmond King or Shaq Griffin. Ryans didn't give a definitive answer, but it looks like we got one today.

One has to wonder if Desmond Kings' experience playing nickel was the reason for his promotion to the active roster and why Griffin was released. If Thomas continues to struggle, King looks like the next man up to replace him.

The Texans also made some other adjustments to their roster on Wednesday, per Aaron Wilson. Linebacker Denzel Perryman returns from suspension, kicker Matt Ammendola and linebacker Garret Wallow join the practice squad. They also released Gerrid Doaks from the practice squad.

The other big piece of news involves left guard Tytus Howard. He heads to injured reserve, ending his season after hurting his knee against Jacksonville.
