The Texans waived Lewis (hamstring) after reaching an injury settlement.
Lewis will be free to sign with another team. He made three tackles and one sack in two games for the Texans last year and will search for a special teams role.
Lewis (shoulder) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Colts.
Lewis, who missed the Texans' Week 16 loss to the Steelers, is now slated to miss the regular-season finale as well due to his shoulder injury. His absence won't have much of an impact, as he logged just three tackles in two games during the 2017 season.
Lewis (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts.
Lewis was a limited participant at practice this week after sitting out Week 16 to earn the questionable tag. The 24-year-old is likely to be a game-day decision in Week 17.
Lewis was ruled out for Monday's game against the Steelers with a shoulder injury.
Lewis did not participate at practice this week so the news is hardly surprising. The 24-year-old has played a rotational role at outside linebacker, but the Texans defense is unlikely to feel his absence in a significant way Monday.
The Texans promoted Lewis from their practice squad Wednesday, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Lewis and fellow linebacker Gimel President will both move up to the 53-man roster to fill the vacancies left by Lamarr Houston, who was released, and Ben Heeney, who was placed on injured reserve due to an unspecified issue. Neither Lewis nor President appears likely to see meaningful snaps on defense.
