Houston Texans’ wide receiver Deante’ Gray’s season is already over before it started.

Football can be a brutal sport. It seems like every year when training camp starts a few players from around the league end up suffering serious injuries during the first few days of camp.

This year Houston Texans rookie wide receiver Deante’ Gray is one of those players.

Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reported on Friday that Gray suffered a torn ACL and is of course done for the season.

The Texans signed Gray after he went undrafted during the 2017 NFL Draft.

Gray has had a rough start to his NFL career. He went down with a partially torn hamstring back in June but of course was able to heal up and get ready for training camp.  Now his season is already over.

The Texans just acquired wide receiver Devin Street off of waivers on Thursday and then waived wide receiver Shaq Hill.

It will be interesting to see if the Texans decide to bring back Hill or sign another receiver.

Houston already has 10 receivers on their roster if you don’t count Gray who is now more than likely headed to season-ending injured reserve.

I fully expect the Texans to give Gray another shot in 2018.

Typically when young players go down with injuries, teams will bring them back the next summer to let them try and prove themselves.

The Texans will likely hand Gray another contract that pays him the minimum since it will also give them another body for camp.
