HOUSTON (SportsRadio 610) -- Rookie offensive lineman Tytus Howard is on the injured list and will not return this season.

The Texans announced Saturday Howard was placed on the injured list, a day after he was listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the New England Patriots. 

Howard, a first-round pick by the Texans this year, has started in eight of the team's 11 games. He made his debut at left guard in Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars before switching over to right tackle in Week 3 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Howard suffered a partially torn medial collateral ligament in his right knee against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 6, which put him out of the following two games. 

In the games Howard missed, the Texans played Roderick Johnson and Chris Clark at right tackle. 

The Texans promoted nose tackle Eddie Vanderdoes from the practice squad to fill Howard's spot on the active 53-man roster.
