HOUSTON -- The Houston Texans today signed receiver Tim Carter and Mark Simmons. Houston released running back Arliss Beach. Center Chukky Okobi was placed on the injured reserve.

Meawhile, Ahman Green was supposed to be the answer to Houston's rushing woes when he joined the team last season.

Instead, the former Green Bay Packer was limited to 70 carries
for 260 yards as he dealt with a nagging knee problem.

The Texans signed free agent Chris Brown this offseason, but
plan to rely on Green as the starter.

Green says he's past his injury and ready to play, but questions
remain about his health.

The injury was first listed as a bone bruise and soon led to
knee swelling. Numerous tests didn't uncover any other injuries but
the injury caused him to miss all or part of 10 games.

Green has been wearing a pad on his left knee as the Texans
participate in their offseason practices.
