The Texans are putting guard Fred Weary on injured reserve, according to a Houston Chronicle report.
That's a huge disappointment for Weary, whose season ended after 12 games last season because of a broken leg.
The Texans will try to reach an injury settlement with Weary, an original member of the expansion team in 2002, in the next five days.
Mike Brisiel, who moved up from the practice squad and started the final four games of 2007 in Weary's place at right guard, has been working with the first team all preseason.
