With veteran Houston punter Shane Lechler dealing with a hip flexor injury suffered last week against the Giants, the Texans have made a proactive move in the event that he can punt this weekend against the Bills.
Houston signed kicker/punter Chris Boswell to their practice squad. He had been with the team in the preseason, initially as competition for K Randy Bullock, but he performed better as a punter.
The Texans tried out four other established NFL punters in Zoltan Mesko, Matt McBriar, Kasey Redfern and former Bills punter Brian Moorman, but signed Boswell.
