Houston Texans Injuries: Owen Daniels Out 4-6 Weeks

Justin Edmonds

The injury bug claims its next victim. This time it's Texans' TE Owen Daniels.

Last night, reports came in that Owen Daniels's fibula was sore and that he would go in for a MRI.


Now the results are in, and it's not good. It seems that Owen Daniels will be out for 4-6 weeks with a non-displaced fibula fracture.


I did a quick Google search and the injury is described as followed:

A non-displaced fracture of the fibula is when the bone cracks either all of the way through or part way through, but does not move. A non-displaced fracture will maintain its proper alignment. If the fracture is displaced, then the bone breaks in two or more parts and moves in such a way that it does not maintain its proper alignment. There are many types of ways that a fracture of the fibula can be classified. In addition to displaced and non-displaced, you could have a closed fracture, open fracture, or comminuted fracture.

In five games this season, Owen Daniels has 24 catches for 252 yards, good for 10.5 yards a catch, and 3 touchdowns. Garrett Graham will take his place as the team's first tight end, and rookie Ryan Griffin should move up to TE2. Look for Nathan Overbay to be moved up from the practice squad to the Texans' active 53 man roster.
