Houston, TX - The Houston Texans announced Monday that they have signed defensive tackle Damione Lewis and linebacker Stanford Keglar.

Keglar spent the previous two seasons with the Tennessee Titans, whom selected him in the fourth round of the 2008 NFL Draft. He has 18 tackles in 25 career games.

The team also waived defensive tackle Frank Okam, promoted defensive tackle Malcolm Sheppard from the practice squad and signed defensive end Tim Jamison to the practice squad.
