The Texans have placed running back Arian Foster (calf), safety Ed Reed (hip) and wide receiver DeVier Posey (Achilles) on the active / physically unable to perform list, the club said Thursday night.
Head coach Gary Kubiak said Foster, the club’s skilled, versatile featured back, would be on PUP for “a couple of days,” John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reported Thursday.
Reed, whom the Texans signed in free agency from Baltimore, had hip surgery in April.
Posey, a second-year pro from Ohio State, suffered his injury in the Texans’ divisional-round loss at New England in January.
While Reed, Foster and Posey were added to the active-PUP list, the Texans removed rookie outside linebacker Sam Montgomery from the list after he passed his physical.
Houston also announced a pair of veteran free-agent signings, adding cornerback Elbert Mack and defensive tackle Daniel Muir. Mack, 27, notched 14 tackles and returned an interception for a touchdown in seven games (two starts) for the Saints in 2012. The 29-year-old Muir saw action in three games with the Jets, recording three tackles.
