The most recent injury report for the Houston Texans leaves some questions that will soon be answered on Sunday Night Football vs. the Dallas Cowboys.
The Houston Texans injury report isn’t awful, but it isn’t the greatest either. Their most recent injury report from Friday has two players listed as out and three as questionable as they enter the Week 5 game against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football.
Out for Sunday are Aaron Colvin and Brian Peters. The cornerback Colvin and inside linebacker Peters both have ankle injuries. The three listed as questionable are wide receivers Keke Coutee and Will Fuller with hamstring issues, plus running back Lamar Miller with a chest injury, as all three were on the limited participation list.
Coutee, Fuller and Miller are all huge for the Texans lineup, but the one in most danger of not playing seems to be Miller as the running back didn’t finish last Sunday’s 37-34 overtime win over the Indianapolis Colts when he suffered the chest injury.
Miller hasn’t had the most productive season on the stat sheet with the Texans starting running back having 225 yards on 58 rushes the season. Miller is averaging 3.9 yards per carry and has no rushing touchdowns this season through the first four games. Miller has also compiled eight receptions for 54 yards and one touchdown.
Again, though this hasn’t been a season to remember for the Texans’ Miller, he is still needed in the lineup as he’s still capable of making big plays and having games of good effort, though he’s not rushed for 100 or more yards in a game since the 2016 season.
Miller would be missed heavily if he’s out of the lineup again the Cowboys.
This will be a very interesting game for the Governor’s Cup with the Cowboys winning the past three meetings of the regular season. This game should showcase many top players from both rosters, and hopefully for the Texans they can have Miller, Coutee and Fuller for this Week 5 game.
