Knee shelves Texans TE Hill for season
He is the second tight end the Texans have lost to a season-ending knee injury this season after Owen Daniels went down with a similar injury early in November.
Hill, a fourth-round pick from North Carolina State, has appeared in five games this season and has one reception for nine yards. He missed some time early in October when he had the first confirmed case of swine flu in an NFL player this season.
