The Houston Texans had solid production from the tight end position in this weekend’s bout with the Tennessee Titans, with C.J. Fiedorowicz hauling in four receptions for 48 yards and a TD. Following his TD catch in the first half of the game, Fiedorowicz suffered a knee injury. Today it was reported to be an MCL sprain, though the injury is not considered serious.

It is not yet clear how much time Fiedorowicz will miss, if any. If he is sidelined for the upcoming match-up against the Vikings, his absence could potentially pave the way for a bigger performance from Ryan Griffin or rookie Stephen Anderson, who was held out of Sunday’s game due to a hamstring injury that he suffered against the New England Patriots.

Anderson had an impressive preseason, including 34 yards and a TD, and has an uncanny ability to get open. He could be in line for a larger role in the Houston offense in the wake of Fiedorowicz’s injury, and more snaps for Anderson is something most of us here at BRB would like to see.
