Rountree was unable to make Houston's 53-man roster out of training camp but ultimately was able to stay with the organization.

Texans' Larry Rountree: Headed to Houston
The Texans signed Rountree on Friday.
Rountree, who logged 13 carries for 19 yards in four games with the Chargers last season, will give the Texans some added backfield depth behind Dameon Pierce and Devin Singletary. The 2021 sixth-rounder is now in a position to compete with Mike Boone, Dare Ogunbowale and Gerrid Doaks for slotting behind Houston's top duo.... See More ... See Less
Larry Rountree: Let go by Chargers
The Chargers waived Rountree on Monday.
With the 2021 sixth-rounder having been let go by the Chargers, the team's backfield is currently headed by Austin Ekeler, Joshua Kelley and Isaiah Spiller. Rountree, who recorded 13 carries for 19 yards in four games last season, will now look to catch on elsewhere as a depth RB option.... See More ... See Less
Chargers' Larry Rountree: Fighting for roster spot
Rountree is on the outside looking in at the Chargers' 53-man roster, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.
Rountree projects as the odd man out if the Chargers carry three running backs entering the new season, with Austin Ekeler, Joshua Kelley and Isaiah Spiller expected to make the team. The 24-year-old made the roster out of training camp last year as the fourth back, but he was waived before the opening game of the regular season. He jumped between the practice squad and active roster throughout the season, and he seems likely to play a similar role in 2023.... See More ... See Less
Chargers' Larry Rountree: Earns another deal from Chargers
The Chargers signed Rountree to a reserve/future contract Monday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.
Rountree was elevated ahead of Saturday's loss to the Jaguars in the wild-card round. He then reverted to the practice squad Monday after exclusively playing on special teams during this season-ending defeat, per the NFL's transaction log. The 23-year-old will now get another opportunity to carve out a bigger role heading into this third NFL season in 2023. Rountree has recorded 49 carries for 106 yards and a touchdown over the past two seasons with the Chargers.... See More ... See Less
Chargers' Larry Rountree: Elevated for wild-card round
Rountree was elevated from the Chargers' practice squad to the active roster Friday.
Rountree will join the Chargers for their playoff matchup against the Jaguars in the wild-card round Saturday. The running back garnered only 13 carries for 19 yards this season and likely won't have much of an impact on offense versus Jacksonville.... See More ... See Less
Larry Rountree: Back to practice squad Monday
Rountree reverted to the Chargers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.
Rountree saw some action during garbage time of Sunday's regular-season finale against Denver. The second-year running back wound up playing eight of his 21 snaps on offense, recording three carries for four yards and a one-yard catch during the fourth quarter. Rountree recorded 13 carries for 19 yards and two receptions (on two targets) for 14 yards over the final two weeks of the regular season.... See More ... See Less
Larry Rountree: Unproductive season
Rountree finished the 2022-23 season with 13 carries for 19 yards and caught both of his targets for another 14 yards.
Rountree had a quiet season, as he spent the majority of it on the practice squad and appeared in just four games. The 2021 sixth-round pick finished fifth in yards and touchdowns among all Chargers running backs, and was also the least efficient, as he averaged just 1.5 yards per carry. Rountree's production fell off from his rookie season, as he had more than double the amount of touches and yards he had this year and also found the end zone once.... See More ... See Less
Chargers' Larry Rountree: Called up again Week 18
The Chargers elevated Rountree from the practice squad Saturday for Sunday's game against the Broncos.
Rountree will be elevated for the third week in a row to end the 2022 regular season. The second-year running back logged 10 carries for 15 yards and a 13-yard reception while playing 12 offensive snaps during garbage time against the Rams in Week 17. With the Bolts already locked into a wild-card spot heading into the regular-season finale (though the Bolts need to win to get the fifth seed in the AFC should Baltimore top Cincinnati), it's possible Rountree could once again see a healthy workload if the team decides to spare top running backs Austin Ekeler and Joshua Kelley from their usual number of touches Week 18....

Chargers' Larry Rountree: Reverts to practice squad
The Chargers moved Rountree back to their practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.
Rountree played 13 of 64 offensive snaps and 10 special-teams snaps in Sunday's win over the Rams. He finished with 10 carries for 15 yards and caught his only target for 13 yards. Rountree logged more work than expected behind Austin Ekeler (28 snaps) and Joshua Kelley (23), though all his work came late in the game after the outcome was essentially decided. With that in mind, Rountree likely won't see this much work next week against Denver if he is elevated again, as the Chargers will be looking to set themselves up as the No. 5 seed in the AFC playoffs....

Chargers' Larry Rountree: Elevated for depth
Rountree was elevated from the practice squad Saturday.
Rountree played four offensive snaps in Monday's win over the Chargers, but he didn't do much else. Expect the 2021 sixth-round pick to act as depth, particularly after veteran Sony Michel was waived Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Larry Rountree: Returns to practice squad
Rountree reverted to the Chargers' practice squad Tuesday.
Rountree played four snaps on offense and eight on special teams in Monday's 20-3 win over the Colts. However, he never touched the ball and failed to record any statistics. He'll be a candidate for elevation again in Week 17 against the Rams if the Chargers are in need of additional backfield depth.... See More ... See Less
Chargers' Larry Rountree: Elevated to active roster
The Chargers elevated Rountree from the practice squad to their active roster Monday.
Rountree will presumably be active for Monday Night Football against the Colts after being elevated to the active roster. If he plays, it'll mark just his second appearance of the season. His last outing came in Week 10 against the 49ers, but he played exclusively on special teams and didn't record any counting stats.... See More ... See Less

Chargers' Larry Rountree: Signs with Chargers
The Chargers signed Rountree to their active roster Saturday ahead of Sunday's game at San Francisco.
After joining the practice squad in September, Rountree will potentially make his 2022 debut in Week 10. With Isaiah Spiller and Sony Michel still in the fold behind Austin Ekeler though, Rountree does not have a clear path to touches right away.... See More ... See Less
