Source: Texans' Davion Davis headed to IR

Texans wide receiver Davion Davis' hard luck continues. 

He broke his ankle last season on his 17-yard catch against the Seattle Seahawks. Now, former Sam Houston State player has a pulled hamstring and is being waived-injured, per a league source. If he clears waivers, reverts to injured reserve

Davis is expected to be retained and allowed time to heal up to play again for Texans in the future.

Davis was placed on injured reserve last season after fracturing his ankle and undergoing surgery.

Davis suffered the season-ending injury on the first play of the Texans' 33-13 loss to the Seahawks while catching a 17-yard pass from quarterback Davis Mills.

Davis played last season under a one-year, $780,000 contract. He is a former Sam Houston State All-American selection the Texans signed off the Cleveland Browns' practice squad. He has also played for the Minnesota Vikings.

Davis (5-foot-11, 195 pounds) caught 52 passes for 569 yards and 10 touchdowns as a senior. He had 76 catches for 1,206 yards and 17 touchdowns as a junior and was the Southland Conference Offensive Player of the Year that season.

The Texans signed former Air Force Academy long snapper Harrison Elliott and wide receiver Chester Rogers.
