The Cardinals and Texans will face two well-known faces…

On November 19, the Houston Texans and Arizona Cardinals play at NRG Stadium.

But when they don the Texans uniforms, two well-known figures in the Cardinals organization will face their old team for the first time.

Josh Moore

Arizona selected Houston offensive lineman Josh Jones with the 72nd overall choice in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Jones would play for the Cardinals in the valley for 54 games, starting 24 of them, until 2022.

But Jones’ time in Arizona would come to an end this past offseason.

Jones’s career came to an end when the Cardinals picked offensive lineman Paris Johnson Jr. with the sixth overall pick in the 2023 Draft.

D.J. Humphries also joined the fold again, making Jones the odd man out.

In exchange for a fifth-round pick in the following draft, Arizona chose to trade Jones and a seventh-round pick in 2024 to the Texans.

Given that Jones was raised in Houston and attended the University of Houston for four years (2015–19), the transaction holds special meaning for him.

After missing time due to a thumb injury, Jones has started in three of his seven games this season for the Texans, his home team.

Sanders, Myjai

Tomorrow, Myjai Sanders, a defensive end with the Texans who was cut by the Cardinals earlier this season, will also face his former team.

Sanders made 13 appearances for the defense of the Cards after being selected by Arizona in the third round of the 2022 Draft.

Sanders produced 23 tackles, three passes defensed, three sacks, and one forced fumble as a result.

However, Sanders was dismissed by the Cardinals on October 17, therefore 2022 would be his first and only season there.

On October 18, the Texans grabbed Sanders off of waivers the next day.

Sanders was a middle linebacker for the Cardinals before switching to the defensive end position.

As of the time of reporting, Sanders had appeared in two games for Houston without receiving any statistical recognition.
