The Texans placed rookie wide receiver Braxton Miller on their injured-reserve list Tuesday.

A third-round pick last April, Miller played in 10 games and started six. A former quarterback who played just one college season as a wide receiver, Miller was used sparingly by the Texans as a kickoff and punt returner.

Miller caught 15 passes for 99 yards and one touchdown. He’s been shut down after suffering a shoulder injury in early December.

Rookie wide receiver Wendall Williams was promoted from the practice squad and will take Miller’s spot on the active roster.

  1. Really hoping to see some growth from this guy next year. He is full of raw potential, but at the time (and now) he was viewed as a bit of a luxury pick for the dynamic offense that we were hoping to put together. Maybe after a year of working together we can see better things from this offense as a whole next season.
