Keyaron Fox Profile
The Houston Texans have placed inside linebacker Keyaron Fox on injured reserve, signing nside linebacker Omar Gaither to replace him on the roster.
Fox injured his left knee and will undergo surgery.
"Obviously sad for the kid, just got rolled up in a drill," Texans coach Gary Kubiak told reporters. "I think he's been playing eight or nine years, so you hate to see that happen. But we'll take care of him, and he'll be a part of our team this year."
Gaither is a former Tennessee Titans fifth-round draft pick.
He played with the Carolina Panthers last season after spending the previous five seasons with the Philadelphai Eagles.
He had a 100-tackle season five years ago with the Eagles and has recorded 34 career special-teams tackles.
The 6-foot-2, 235-pounder isn't slated to play in the Texans' preseason opener against the Panthers.
