Houston Texans Injury News: Jeff Adams Out For Season With Knee Injury

New, comments

The offensive line was already thin for the Houston Texans, but it is now in even worse shape with the latest injury news for offensive tackle Jeff Adams. See the details, and talk about it on Battle Red Blog.

The Houston Texans have struggled on offense in their first two games of the 2015 NFL regular season, and much of that has been due to injuries and lack of depth along the offensive line:

Xavier Su'a-Filo, who normally starts at left guard, has yet to play a single regular season snap due to a high ankle sprain suffered during training camp.

All-Pro left tackle Duane Brown played through the pain in the season opener against the Chiefs with a broken thumb that he suffered in training camp, but aggravated it enough that he was inactive for game two against the Carolina Panthers.  There is no indication if he will be back on the field for the upcoming home game against the visiting Buccaneers.

If all of that wasn't bad enough, it is being reported that Jeff Adamswho was filling in along the offensive line as a left guard and right tackle, suffered a torn patellar tendon in yesterday's loss and will miss the rest of this season.

Adams' leg was put into an air cast and he was carted off the field, so this news was unfortunately expected to a large degree.  It will be a huge test for the front office and coaching staff to get a healthy offensive line together by next Sunday.
