The Houston Texans announced they have activated quarterback Tyrod Taylor from injured reserve.

The former 2015 Pro Bowler had been placed on injured reserve after Week 2 when he strained his hamstring in the 31-21 loss to the Cleveland Browns.

The Texans knew that Taylor would be the starter and replace rookie quarterback Davis Mills whenever the 32-year-old was ready to come back.

Houston placed linebacker Christian Kirksey, who had been dealing with a thumb injury, on injured reserve. Kirksey will be eligible to return three weeks from now.

The Texans used one of their standard practice squad elevations on safety Jonathan Owens.

Houston faces the Miami Dolphins Sunday at 12:00 p.m. Central Time at Hard Rock Stadium.
