Texans sign Dayne

 HOUSTON (AP) _ Ron Dayne signed with the Houston Texans today, reuniting with coach Gary Kubiak. The signing of Dayne adds a veteran presence to complement Houston's two young running backs _ rookie Wali Lundy and second-year player Vernand Morency. Texans' leading rusher Domanick Davis was placed on the injured reserve on Saturday. Dayne is a 1999 Heisman Trophy winner who was cut by the Denver Broncos on Saturday after entering training camp as the starting tailback. Dayne was released by the Broncos after undrafted rookie Mike Bell had a great preseason while the seven-year veteran was sidelined with a turf toe. He had just five carries for 12 yards in the preseason. Also today, Houston signed safety Kevin Curtis, quarterback Quinton Porter, receiver Richie Ross and guard Mike Brisiel to the practice squad.
