Houston Texans Roster Moves: Tim Jamison To IR, David Hunter Called Up From Practice Squad

Troy Taormina-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

See ya next year, Timmy.

At yesterday's press conference, the depth for the defensive line unit took a hit as Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak announced that fourth-year defensive end Tim Jamison would be placed on injured reserve and miss the rest of the season with a torn achilles tendon suffered in Sunday night's loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Jamison, the third defensive end, became a fan favorite for his hustle on the field when he spelled Antonio Smith and J.J. Watt. The former Michigan Wolverine, who signed a two-year extension earlier this year, had a sack and batted pass in limited action this year.

To fill Jamison's roster spot, the Texans announced they had promoted rookie defensive end David Hunter from the practice squad to the 53-man roster. Hunter's name will be familiar to some as he played for the University of Houston and nearby Waller (TX) High School. The 6'2'', 300-pounder will likely slot in as the fourth defensive end behind Watt, Smith, and 2012 fourth-round selection Jared Crick.

To fill the now-vacant practice squad spot, The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson reports that Houston will sign former Baltimore nose tackle Lamar Divens. Yes, Houston fans now have a 335-pound nose tackle to dream about.
