The Houston Texans have ended the seasons of tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz and wide receiver Bruce Ellington after they went down with injuries in week 14.

The Houston Texans announced on Tuesday that they’ve placed tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz and wide receiver Bruce Ellington on season-ending injured reserve.

In order to fill their spots on their 53-man roster, the Texans signed tight end MyCole Pruitt and wide receiver DeAndrew White off of their practice squad and onto their active roster.

In response, Houston added wide receiver Devin Lucien and cornerback Josh Thornton to their practice squad.

Fiedorowicz suffered a concussion against the Tennessee Titans and Ellington went down with a hamstring injury.

I understand why the Texans would place Fiedorowicz on injured reserve, since this was this third concussion of the season. They placed him on IR after he suffered a concussion during the preseason and then in their season-opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He just came back two weeks ago.

Fiedorowicz may want to consider retiring.

Ellington’s hamstring injury will likely keep him out long enough for it not to be worth it for the Texans to keep him on the active roster, given the fact that there are only four games left in the season and they won’t be going to the playoffs this year.

Other than the emergence of quarterback Deshaun Watson, this will be a season that the Texans will be happy to forget about with all of the injuries that they’ve had to deal with as a team.
