Your Houston Texans have had rotten injury luck throughout the first six weeks of the 2015 season, and there's no reason to think that'll change against the Dolphins in Week Seven. Here's the latest on who won't be wearing a Texans uniform when the team attempts to put together its first winning streak of the year.
Bill O'Brien: Jackson, Shorts, McKinney out for Miami— Mark Berman (@MarkBermanFox26) October 21, 2015
Bill O'Brien says Clowney is day-to-day— Mark Berman (@MarkBermanFox26) October 21, 2015
Aaron Wilson has the words straight out of Bill O'Brien's mouth, plus an update on Brandon Brooks.
"McKinney probably will be out for the game," O’Brien said. "Jackson will be out for the game. Shorts will be out for the game."
O’Brien also called guard Brandon Brooks "day-to-day" because of an injury to his toe. Brooks is expected to play.
It'll be interesting to see if Romeo Crennel does anything different without Kareem Jackson in the secondary. Kevin Johnson will presumably start opposite Johnathan Joseph, which shouldn't represent a dramatic drop-off (frankly, as Weston so eloquently wrote earlier today, it could be an unabashed positive with the way Kareem has played this season), but the issues at linebacker and safety remain.
