With receiver Andre Johnson not participating in OTAs, the Houston Texans have elected to add another receiver to their roster in the interim.

The Texans were awarded rookie receiver Kofi Hughes off waivers on Wednesday.

Hughes had been signed by the Washington Redskins as an undrafted free agent on May 15. He was waived by the team on Tuesday.

Hughes caught 47 passes for 739 yards and seven touchdowns in his final season at the Indiana University last fall. Hughes ended his career with 132 receptions for 1,956 yards and 13 touchdowns in 45 career games for the Hoosiers.
