The Texans have signed offensive tackle Nate Menkin to their practice squad, according to a league source.

Menkin was cut by the Texans to get down to 53 players and went unclaimed.

He was brought back to the Texans during training camp as the return in a trade that sent wide receiver Jeff Maehl to Philadelphia.

Menkin, who went undrafted out of Mary Hardin-Baylor last year, was with the Texans last training camp too. They cut him and planned to add him to the practice squad but he didn't clear waivers. The Eagles claimed him.

The Texans already have eight players on their practice squad, so they'll need to release one.
