Texans re-sign Crawford, place Martinez on IR

The Texans made a move to bolster their depth at wide receiver on Monday, placing Glenn Martinez on the reserve/injured list and re-signing London Crawford.

Crawford (6-2, 203), a rookie receiver out of Arknasas, originally signed with the Texans in May as an undrafted free agent. He was released on June 16 after the Texans' three-day mini-camp.

Martinez injured his hamstring on Saturday and did not practice over the last two days. Rookie wide receiver Trindon Holliday also out with a hamstring injury and could miss a few more days of practice, and the Texans don't like to work Pro Bowler Andre Johnson when they practice indoors. Crawford will add another body to the mix as the team continues through training camp.

A four-year veteran, Martinez signed with the Texans in 2009. He played in seven games last season, returning six punts for 23 yards.
