The Texans made a practice squad move on Tuesday, releasing running back Davin Meggett and signing linebacker Cameron Collins.

Collins (6-2, 241), an undrafted rookie from Oregon State, was previously on the Texans’ practice squad from Oct. 11-29. He gives the Texans a developmental player for insurance at a position that has been beset by injuries.

Texans outside linebacker Brooks Reed is out for several weeks with a groin injury. Inside linebacker Bradie James may not be available this Sunday because of a hamstring injury. Inside linebacker Tim Dobbins missed the last game with a shoulder injury but is expected to return this week. Inside linebacker Darryl Sharpton is only two games removed from the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Meggett (5-8, 215), an undrafted rookie from Maryland, spent all offseason with the Texans before being released in the preseason. He was re-signed to the practice squad on Sept. 26 after the New York Jets signed Jonathan Grimes away from the Texans. The Texans re-acquired Grimes off waivers on Oct. 31, and running back Ben Tate is expected to return this week from a hamstring injury suffered in Week 7.
