The Jets also signed cornerback Donnie Fletcher to their practice squad, a day after waiving him from the active roster.
Grimes was signed by the Texans as an undrafted free agent out of William & Mary in May and waived after the preseason before being signed to Houston's practice squad.
He left William & Mary as the school's career leader with 4,541 yards rushing, 7,955 all-purpose yards, 2,289 kickoff return yards and 936 rushing attempts. Grimes also earned 11 all-conference honors during his career, the most in Colonial Athletic Association history.
