The Houston Texans get back tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz while losing tight end Ryan Griffin.

The injury bug continues to bite the Houston Texans. They’ve now lost their starting tight end in Ryan Griffin for the season, to a concussion.

The good news is that the Texans did activate C.J. Fiedorowicz from injured reserve. He was Houston’s starting tight end back in week one, when he went down with a concussion. After suffering two concussions within a short period of time, the Texans decided to place him on injured reserve.

Griffin finishes the season with only 13 receptions for 158 yards and one touchdown. He wasn’t targeted at all during last week’s loss to the Indianapolis Colts prior to going down.

Stephen Anderson ended up replacing Griffin last week and caught four passes for 44 yards on eight targets.

Losing Griffin isn’t detrimental for the Texans, but the problem is that the guy who will take over as the starting tight, Fiedorowicz, has had a hard time staying healthy.

Duane Brown get ankle rolled up on during Seahawks game

It looks like the injury bug followed former Texans’ left tackle Duane Brown to the Seattle Seahawks. He ended up getting his ankle rolled up on during Thursday night’s win over the Arizona Cardinals.

Hopefully Brown will be OK. My guess is that he suffered a sprained ankle. It will be interesting to see how much time he misses as Seattle continues to try and keep pace with the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC West.
