The Texans have placed OT Rashad Butler on injured reserve because of an elbow sprain. Taking his place on the active roster is Andrew Gardner, who previously was on Houston's practice squad.

Butler played in Houston's first two games of this season and all 16 games the past two years. Gardner has never played in an NFL game.

The Texans also added C Cody Wallace to the practice squad, taking the spot of Gardner.
