The Texans have activated tight end Anthony Hill from the Physically Unable to Perform list and waived defensive tackle Malcolm Sheppard.
Hill (6-6, 278) was a fourth-round draft pick last year out of North Carolina State. He suffered a torn ACL last season against the Seattle Seahawks on Dec. 13.
Sheppard (6-2, 289) is an undrafted rookie from Arkansas. The Texans called him up from their practice squad in Week 8 to play against the Indianapolis Colts. He had not been active since that game with rookie Earl Mitchell back in good health and veteran Damione Lewis also emerging at the defensive tackle position.
