Bill O'Brien had his Monday press conference and, outside of avoiding the question about his starting quarterback situation, O'Brien noted that tight end Ryan Griffin will miss 'significant' time after spraining his MCL against the Chiefs.
O'Brien: TE Ryan Griffin "will miss some time" bc of injury. A "significant" amount.— Drew Dougherty (@DoughertyDrew) September 14, 2015
"We're talking about that right now, but we haven't come to a decision yet."-O'Brien on if #Texans will add a TE to roster.— Drew Dougherty (@DoughertyDrew) September 14, 2015
Griffin left the game after this play:
The Texans selected Griffin in the sixth round of the 2013 NFL Draft out of the University of Connecticut. Griffin has appeared in 32 games over the past three seasons with the Texans, catching 30 passes for 353 yards and two touchdowns. Griffin had passed Garrett Graham on the Texans' depth chart entering this season.
O'Brien said the Texans haven't made up their mind yet about whether they'll add another tight end to the roster. The Texans do have Eric Tomlinson on the practice squad at the moment, so they could bring him up.
"I would not count on him for Carolina."-O'Brien on OL Xavier Su'a-Filo.— Drew Dougherty (@DoughertyDrew) September 14, 2015
Mike Mohamed is still battling through a calf injury. Mohamed told Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle that:
"It's still sore," Mohamed said. "I'm working hard every day. Although I'm not on the field, I'm rehabbing and training hard."
He still expected to be out 2-4 weeks.
