HOUSTON -- Houston Texans guard Fred Weary has been placed on injured reserve because of lingering problems with his right leg.
The 6-foot-4, 307-pound Weary fractured his tibia and fibula in
Houston's 28-20 loss to Tennessee on December 2nd. He underwent
offseason surgery and had additional procedures during training
camp, but never recovered completely. He went on the IR Monday.
Weary was one of the Texans' original players, drafted in the
third round in 2002. He played in 12 games in Houston's inaugural
season and has appeared in 63 of the Texans' 96 all-time games.
The Texans signed running back Marcel Shipp to fill Weary's
roster spot. Shipp was released by Arizona on August. 4.
