During the Texans 34-24 win over the Colts on Sunday, they lost 2nd year defensive end Connor Barwin in the process. Barwin dislocated his ankle in the first half of the game after colliding with teammate Antonio Smith. He is expected to undergo surgery on Wednesday and will miss the entire 2010 season.

The Texans, however, wasted no time in searching for his replacement. While Jesse Nading took over for Barwin on Sunday, the Texans are going to look outside the organization for reinforcement. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Texans are set to bring in veteran defensive end’s Bobby McCray and Adewale Ogunleye for a workout tomorrow. Also, Jason La Canfora of NFL.com is reporting that the Texans have contacted defensive end Leonard Little. It is unknown how much interest they have in him or if they plan to bring him in for a workout.

Stay tuned..
