Heath was moved to the active roster Wednesday.
Heath had previously been on the Active/Non-Football Injury list. It's unclear what kind of role he'll have this season if he makes the team.
Because of the lack of transparency, it's unclear how long Heath will be out. Until this designation is removed, though, he'll be unable to practice. Still, this shouldn't come as a threat to fantasy teams, as his playing time depends on when Jadeveon Clowney and J.J. Watt are injured or just need to catch their breath. Heath finished the 2016 season with eight tackles and two sacks in 12 games.
Heath (knee) is 100 percent healthy, WCPO's Mike Dyer reports.
Heath went down in the Texans' divisional-round loss to the Patriots last January. While it still isn't certain what specific type of knee injury he was dealing with, the second-year Michigan State product did not require surgery and has been participating in the outset of OTAs.
Heath (knee) is scheduled for an MRI on Monday, the Houston Chronicle reports.
Heath injured his knee in the Texans' divisional-round loss to the Patriots on Saturday. While the extent of his injury wasn't reported, it isn't expected to require surgery. Nonetheless, the MRI results will provide a much clearer picture.
