The Texans’ linebackers looked fast in coverage against the Browns with Benardrick McKinney blitzing, Zach Cunningham moving from the center of the field to the sideline, and Dylan Cole chasing Duke Johnson down the sideline.
After sticking his arm out and accidentally intercepting a pass, Cole was tackled from behind. He quickly pounded the turf with his fist and was helped off the field. Based off his reaction, Cole’s injury looked bad. Really bad. The towel covering his face as he was carted off the locker room made it look even worse.
Well, there’s news. Aaron Wilson reports that Dylan Cole suffered a Grade Two hamstring pull and will be out for a minimum of four weeks.

This seems so much better than what was initially expected when he was first injured. With the bye this week, that would put MDC’s hometown hero’s expected return date against the Arizona Cardinals at the earliest.
