Dylan Cole, Chris Clark to undergo MRI’s
Another game for the Houston Texans means more injuries as they head into their bye week.
Houston Texans’ rookie linebacker Dylan Cole went down with a hamstring injury during Sunday’s win over the Cleveland Browns.
Cole will undergo an MRI on Monday, but says he’s confident he’ll be OK.
"“I feel good, I’m not exactly sure what’s going to happen, but we’ll figure it out,” Cole said. “I feel confident what’s going to happen.”"
Cole injured his hamstring while intercepting Browns’ quarterback Kevin Hogan, on what was an acrobatic play on his part.
Cole has been playing some great football after signing with the Texans this past offseason as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Missouri State University.
Latest on Chris Clark’s injury.
Another Texans’ starter that went down is left tackle Chris Clark, who suffered a calf injury. Right now he believes he’ll be good to go after next week’s bye week.
Like Cole, Clark will undergo an MRI on his calf on Monday.
Kendall Lamm ended up filling in for Clark. He hadn’t been on the field since he struggled in week one against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
A bye week for the Texans couldn’t have come at a better time with Clark and Cole now banged up.

Safety Corey Moore missed Sunday’s game due to a concussion that he suffered in week five against the Kansas City Chiefs, along with cornerback Kevin Johnson (knee) and linebacker Ben Heeney (knee).
Getting Johnson back will be huge for a Texans’ secondary that’s given up some big plays in 2017.
I would expect the Texans to get at least Moore and Johnson back for the Seattle Seahawks in week eight.
