Texans tight end Ryan Griffin, who has been out since spraining his medial collateral ligament Week 1, was activated from short-term injured reserve on Sunday in advance of Houston's Monday night game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

In a corresponding more, the Texans announced the release backup offensive lineman Eric Kush to make room for Griffin.

Griffin's return once again gives Houston three tight ends on the roster. The three-year veteran will provide depth behind Garrett Graham and C.J. Fiedorowicz.

The 25-year-old Griffin had one catch for 18 yards before being injured in Houston's season-opening loss to Kansas City.

Texans TE Garrett Graham has looked 'impressive' and is 'getting open with regularity'

Texans beat writer Tania Ganguli: Tight end Garrett Graham is a player to watch on the Texans’ offense. The Texans’ tight ends had trouble getting open last year, and consequently Houston targeted tight ends less than any other team in the league. That was a surprising fact because of how tight end-friendly Bill O’Brien’s offense has been in the past. Graham looked impressive in camp, getting open with regularity, and it bodes well for his season.

Fantasy Impact:

There has been a constant positive buzz about Graham this offseason, so he could surprise in an offense that desperately needs playmakers in the passing game. It's worth noting that, while in Cleveland, Texans starting QB Brian Hoyer fed Jordan Cameron the ball at a 39-796-9 pace (over nine games from 2013-14).

After a season in which he caught just 18 passes, fewest of any starting tight end in the NFL, Garrett Graham of the Houston Texans is focused on becoming more involved in the offense.

Graham's 2014 performance was a disappointment considering the promise he showed in 2013 when he caught 49 passes for 545 yards and five touchdowns.

And it wasn't just Graham. As a whole, Houston's tight ends failed to make an impact with just 32 combined receptions among the group.

"I've got to do a better job getting open," Graham said, via the Houston Chronicle. "We all do, and it's something we're really trying to improve on, because last season obviously wasn't very productive for us. We're spending a lot of time with the quarterbacks, before and after practice. The point of emphasis is definitely there. They're coaching us up, helping us out a ton."

Fantasy Impact:

Graham missed Week 1 last season with a back injury and sat out the final four games of the season with a high ankle sprain. In the 11 games he did appear in, he was targeted just 28 times. That was a sharp decline from the 83 times the ball was thrown his way in 2013. A fourth-round pick in 2010, Graham is hoping to bounce back in 2015. Having stability at the quarterback position, in the form of either Ryan Mallett or Brian Hoyer should help.

Texans beat writer John Harris: When we all talked about how the tight ends have to produce much more in this offense, Texans TE Garrett Graham must have heard every word. He has been incredibly difficult to cover throughout training camp and I can’t remember a 1-on-1 situation where he hasn’t gotten open and made the catch. Steady, solid and a reliable passing game tool for these quarterbacks to utilize.

Fantasy Impact:

Graham is competing with C.J. Fiedorowicz for snaps. With the loss of Arian Foster, this isn't shaping up to be a very productive offense, but Graham may have his moments.

A couple of notes from Texans camp on Saturday:

- Rookie RB Kenny Hilliard caught four passes at LSU as a senior but watching him catch the ball during minicamp, OTAs and again today, it’s clear he catches it better than you’d expect from those numbers. He made a handful of catches and looked comfortable in that aspect of the offense.

- Rookie TE Mike McFarland, known a bit more for his blocking than his receiving, made a few sweet catches throughout practice. He’s a big boy and if he can catch it consistently and his blocking matches up, he’ll get more important reps as training camp continues.

- After an initial drop, TE C.J Fiedorowicz was much more of a factor in the passing game. He made a couple of touchdown catches down in the red zone and seemed much more comfortable than he was last year. If he, Ryan Griffin and Garrett Graham can be more involved in the passing game, look out.

Watch for a jump from second-year tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz. The second year is big for NFL players, and both Fiedorowicz and the Texans' organization are pleased with his progress and expect a much better season out of him. His blocking was expected to be a strength, and O'Brien has indicated he thinks it will be more of one this year.

Fantasy Impact:

Fiedorowicz only has Garrett Graham ahead of him on the depth chart, so there is opportunity for a big jump in playing time.
