Houston Texans wide receiver Noah Brown was placed on injured reserve Wednesday with a groin injury.

Brown had three receptions for 20 yards in Week 1 at Baltimore, sharing time with rookie Tank Dell. Dell, who caught three passes for 34 yards, will step into an expanded role.

Brown played 52 snaps in the 25-9 loss to the Ravens; Dell played 37.

Texans defensive tackle Hassan Ridgeway was also placed on IR.

To fill their roster spots, the Texans elevated rookie punter Ty Zentner from the practice squad and signed defensive end Michael Dogbe.

Ridgeway was questionable for Week 1 with a calf injury and left the game after posting two tackles due to the same injury.
