The Texans re-signed David Anderson, adding depth at wide receiver with Kevin Walter potentially out this week with a right collarbone injury.
To make room for Anderson on the roster, the Texans waived defensive end Tim Bulman, leaving them with five defensive linemen. Bulman was inactive against the Colts in Week 1.
Anderson, 28, played with the Texans from 2006-10 after being drafted in the seventh round out of Colorado State. He had 81 catches for 886 yards and three touchdowns in those five seasons, including a career-best 2009 season in which he had 38 catches 370 yards. He caught 11 balls for 117 yards last season.
The Texans released Anderson after the lockout and he signed with the Broncos, but he was released by Denver in their final roster cuts.
Before signing Anderson, the Texans would have been down to three healthy wide receivers if Walter ended up missing time because of his collarbone injury. Anderson gives them a fourth who can step on the field immediately and contribute.
