Running back Justin Forsett isn’t the only veteran free-agent who’ll get a chance to catch the attention of the Houston Texans on Wednesday. Veteran free-agent wideout Mike Sims-Walker will work out on Wednesday for the defending AFC South champions, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Sims-Walker played four games with the Rams last year before being released and returning to Jacksonville last season. After two games back with the Jaguars, a knee injury landed him on injured reserve.

In 2009, Sims-Walker made a big splash with 63 catches for 869 receiving yards and seven touchdowns for the Jaguars. The next season, his production dropped by 20 catches and more than 300 yards, but he added another seven touchdowns.

The Jaguars let him leave via free agency in 2011, opting not to apply a restricted free agency tender.

The Texans have needs at the position given the decision to cut Jacoby Jones and the recent knee injury sustained by Andre Johnson, which is expected to knock him out for the balance of offseason workouts.
