Anthony Miller, the Houston Texans newest weapon left the game Saturday night,

Just as Anthony Miller was starting to get going in the game against the Green Bay Packers, he was tackled in the third quarter when he landed awkwardly. The ball came out when he hit the ground, but the play was ruled dead.

Miller got up but held his right shoulder as he limped his way over to the sideline. The TV broadcast didn’t show him for a bit until word was passed along that he had been carted off the field.

Texans fans were kept a little uneasy until after the game when Texans head coach David Culley provided an update in his press conference. When asked, Culley relayed that Miller has a “slight dislocation” and that he will get further evaluation soon.

The Houston Texans need Anthony Miller

Miller is looking for a fresh start here with Houston. Having Mitchell Trubisky as your quarterback is enough to age anyone. There were almost no expectations here as compared to Chicago, and that’s something that Miller needed and got upon arrival.

Let’s hope his injury isn’t too serious, as he could really open up the playbook and let rookie wide receiver Nico Collins thrive into the player he was at Michigan. In this west-coast style offense, last night’s game was of course “pass to set up the run”.

Have good route runners like Miller only helps that offense get off the ground. Phillip Lindsay and Scottie Phillips were very effective all night as draws and zone reach plays got efficient yardage to see the team up for success.

It’s back to Houston for some much-needed rest, and to get ready for the next matchup against the Dallas Cowboys.
