The Houston Texans roster is now depleted after only one game.

Not only did the Houston Texans get blown out by the Jacksonville Jaguars this past Sunday, but quite a few players suffered injuries. They now have a total of 15 of their 53 players dealing with injuries.

The Texans were back on the practice field on Monday, but their injury report is a mess as they prepare for Thursday night’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

The following players didn’t practice on Monday:

G Jeff Allen (Ankle)

TE Stephen Anderson (Concussion)

RB Alfred Blue (Ankle)

LB Brian Cushing (Concussion)

WR Bruce Ellington (Concussion)

TE C.J. Fiedorowicz (Concussion)

WR Will Fuller V (Shoulder)

TE Ryan Griffin (Concussion)

CB Kevin Johnson (Knee)

The following players were limited in practice:

OLB/DE Jadeveon Clowney (Foot)

S Andre Hal (Hip)

C Nick Martin (Ankle)

ILB Benardrick McKinney (Knee)

QB Deshaun Watson (Ankle)

DE J.J. Watt (Finger)

The following Texans’ players fully participated in practice:

NT Brandon Dunn (Abdomen)

RB Tyler Ervin (Knee)

T Breno Guancomini (Thigh)

DE Joel heath (Knee)

WR DeAndre Hopkins (Wrist)

QB Tom Savage (Finger)

So both of the Texans’ quarterbacks ended up getting banged up, but Savage was able to practice, while Watson was limited.

If Watson can practice on Tuesday he’s expected to start against the Bengals.

We already know that Cushing has been ruled out with a concussion and I would be surprised if any of Houston’s three tight ends play after they also suffered concussions in week one.

What’s also eye-opening is that a very strong Texans’ defense is all of a sudden banged up after only one game.
