Houston, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - The Houston Texans made it official on Tuesday, releasing veteran safety Ed Reed after less than one season with the club and placing running back Arian Foster on injured reserve.

Reed signed a three-year, $15-million deal with the Texans in the off-season. However, injuries and off-season surgery denied him time on the field at the beginning of the year. He saw his first action with the club in Week 3 and recently lost his starting job.

The Miami-Florida product had spent his entire 11-year career with in Baltimore after the Ravens selected him with the 24th overall pick of the 2002 draft. Reed has led the league in interceptions three times, totaling 61 in 160 career games. He has taken a pick back for a touchdown seven times.

A nine-time Pro Bowl selection, Reed helped the Ravens to the Super Bowl last season. He had four interceptions and 58 tackles in 16 regular-season games last year.

This season, he has just 16 combined tackles in seven games.

Foster's season is officially over thanks to a back injury. The 27-year-old completed his fifth pro campaign with 542 yards and one touchdown on 121 carries for the 2-7 Texans, who have lost seven in a row heading into a home game against Oakland on Sunday.
