HOUSTON - The Houston Texans have placed running back Ahman Green on injured reserve, it was announced today. The team also announced that quarterback Shane Boyd was signed to the active roster off of the practice squad.

Green (6-0, 218) played in six games, starting five for the Texans this season. He is second on the team with 260 rushing yards on 70 attempts and two touchdowns. Green suffered an injury to his left knee in the second game of the season at Carolina (9/16) which forced him to miss six games, including the last three.
