Texans place Weary, White on IR; sign guards Brisiel, Hodgdon

HOUSTON -- The Texans placed offensive linemen Fred Weary and Chris White on the injured reserve on Tuesday and signed Drew Hodgdon and Mike Brisiel.

Weary broke his right leg and White suffered a knee injury against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

Weary, a six-year veteran, had started all 12 games this season. White, a backup, had appeared in six games.

Brisiel, a guard, has been on the Texans practice squad for the past two seasons. He played with the Hamburg Sea Devils in NFL Europe last season.

Hodgdon, a fifth-round pick in 2005, started eight games for the Texans from 2005-06. He was released during training camp.

The team also signed guard Dan Stevenson to the practice squad.
