    Didn't see this posted elsewhere.


    The Texans have signed veteran guard Tutan Reyes to the active roster and placed starting right guard Mike Brisiel on injured reserve with a Lisfranc [Marcus] injury to his left foot. They also added linebacker Darnell Bing to the practice squad and released linebacker Buster Davis.

    Reyes, a 10-year veteran who played with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2007-08, helps to shore up a young offensive line that has been decimated by injuries at the guard positions. Season-ending injuries to Brisiel and starting left guard Chester Pitts left the Texans with Kasey Studdard, Chris White and Antoine Caldwell as their only healthy guards.

    "Until we signed (Reyes), we had seven active offensive linemen, and that won't cut it in this league; it's scary," head coach Gary Kubiak said. "Tutan has played some football in this league, so that's a good thing."

    The Texans are the seventh NFL team for Reyes, a 2000 fifth-round draft pick by the Saints out of Ole Miss.

    "Some of the terminology is pretty similar to what I've seen in the past in the league," Reyes said. "I'll learn the offense, get in there and provide depth. If they need me to step in there and play, that's what I'm here for."

    Brisiel started 25 consecutive games at right guard after being called up from the Texans' practice squad in 2007. White and Caldwell will compete for his spot in the starting lineup.

    Bing was a first-team All-American safety at USC in 2005. He moved to outside linebacker after being drafted by the Raiders in the fourth round in 2006. Bing played in four games with the Detroit Lions earlier this season, recording four special teams tackles and a fumble recovery, and was released on Oct. 6.

    I don't think signing Reyes is indicative of how close or far away Caldwell is. The Texans had to have a body. And that's what Reyes is.

    There's a decent chance that White and Caldwell both play well enough that the coaches put one at Center. I can hope, right?
