Houston Texans rookie wide receiver Deante’ Gray suffered a tough blow this past week.

Undrafted rookie free agents need all the reps they can get leading up to training camp.

Unfortunately for Texans’ rookie wide receiver Deante’ Gray, he won’t be able to get back on the field until training camp after suffering a partially torn hamstring.

Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle has the scoop:

"Texans rookie wide receiver Deante’ Gray is expected to be out until training camp with a Grade 2 partially torn hamstring, according to a league source not authorized to speak publicly."

Gray played his college ball at TCU and was handed a $2,000 signing bonus after going undrafted after this year’s NFL Draft.

Gray only recorded 10 receptions for 119 yards during his final season at TCU.  He ended his college career with 54 receptions for 857 yards and eight touchdowns.

Gray has the speed to be a difference maker in the NFL after running a 4.3-4.4 forty yard dash. He’s not big though at 5-foot-10, 174 pounds.

If Gray is going to have any chance at making the Texans’ 53-man roster, he’ll need to get healthy and make an impact on special teams this summer.
