The Houston Texans can breathe a sign of relief after the injury to wide receiver Braxton Miller, suffered in last Wednesday’s preseason bout with the Carolina Panthers, turned out to be a mild ankle sprain.

Miller is expected to emerge as an important part of Houston’s offensive attack this season after missing much of his rookie campaign with hamstring and shoulder issues. He had three catches for ten yards in last week’s preseason game.
Houston has already lost former first-round pick Will Fuller for several weeks after he broke his collarbone in training camp. Since then, Texans have added Gerome Hopper and Bruce Ellington to bolster their depth at the position.
Miller’s outlook is considered good, and he should return to the field soon. Perhaps in time for Houston’s preseason matchup with New England on Saturday night.
