5 Texans’ players knocked out of Titans game and counting
The Houston Texans just can’t shake the injury bug this season.
Another game means more injuries for the Houston Texans.
During Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz, wide receiver Bruce Ellington and cornerback Johnathan Joseph have all been knocked out of the game due to injury.
Fiedorowicz has suffered his third concussion of the season. My guess is that his year is over and he should think about retiring. He suffered one prior to the regular season opener and one in week one.
Joseph has a shoulder injury and Ellington has a hamstring injury.
Also wide receiver Braxton Miller has a concussion and so does linebacker Jelani Jenkins.
The only other healthy wide receivers on the Texans’ roster are Chris Thompson and Cobi Hamilton. Unfortunately, Hamilton isn’t active, so Houston is down to two healthy wide receivers, including DeAndre Hopkins.
The Texans may end up having to use running backs Jordan Todman, Alfred Blue and Andre Ellington as receivers. Or even some defensive backs.
I know the Texans has been ravaged by injuries, but so have teams like the Seattle Seahawks, New York Giants, Green Bay Packers and many others. It’s so bad this season that the healthiest team will likely win the Super Bowl, not necessarily the best one.
And as I continue to write this article, Blue is being evaluated for the concussions.
Update: Blue is out with a concussion.
This is not just bad luck. This is the result of playing a sport like football that could go away 10 years from now with players suffering so much brain trauma.
