Veteran wide receiver Noah Brown was placed on the Reserve/Injured List. Brown sustained a shoulder injury during the first quarter of the Texans’ wild card game on Saturday.

Wide receiver Steven Sims was elevated from the practice squad to the active roster.
With the conclusion of Wild Card Weekend, the Texans officially have the 23rd pick during the first round of the draft. Due to a trade with the Cleveland Browns in 2022, the Texans own their next three first-round picks. The Texans currently own eight draft picks for the upcoming 2024 draft in April.
