The Texans activated offensive tackle Geron Christian from the reserve-COVID-19 list one day after activating running back Buddy Howell and wide receiver Taywan Taylor from the list.
The Texans were awarded Christian off waivers from the Washington Football Team during the spring as they acquired his $3.74 million rookie contract.
Christian is a 2018 third-round draft pick from Louisville who was drafted 74th overall.
He played in 24 career games with eight career starts for Washington, starting six games last season before he injured his knee.
Christian (6-foot-6, 315 pounds) started 39 games for Louisville before declaring early for the NFL draft.
Christian tore his medial collateral ligament as a rookie and was placed on injured reserve.
Christian has run the 40-yard dash in 5.33 seconds and bench pressed 225 pounds 22 times.
