Houston Texans’ starting quarterback Tom Savage all of a sudden has a shoulder injury.

There was one surprise addition to the Houston Texans’ injury report on Wednesday.

It turns out that starting quarterback Tom Savage suffered a shoulder injury during this past Sunday’s loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

The last thing the Texans need is another injury to the quarterback position. The good news though, is that Savage fully practiced on Wednesday.

As you can see above, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle wrote that Savage injured his right shoulder, which is his throwing shoulder. I imagine that it’s not serious, since he fully participated in practice. But it is something worth monitoring, given the fact that it will only take one good hit to knock Savage out of this week’s game. Not to mention that the Texans’ offensive line is a major liability.

The Cardinals have a pretty good pass rush with guys like Chandler Jones and Corey Peters, so the Texans’ offensive line will have quite a test. Arizona is currently ranked 14th in the NFL with 23 sacks so far this season.

If Savage does go down or is unable to start, I would expect T.J. Yates to replace him.

The only players that didn’t practice were wide receiver Will Fuller–who isn’t expected to play– linebacker Dylan Cole and offensive lineman Julien Davenport.

Jeff Allen, Chris Clark, Jadeveon Clowney, Joel Heath, Kareem Jackson and Johnathan Joseph were all limited.
