The Texans had been a really healthy football team until last week. They lost Kevin Johnson, Dylan Cole, and Bruce Ellington.
Concussions are always a terrible thing. But Johnson’s injury was major, playing time wise. Once again, Johnson was playing poorly to start the season.
Cole was useful, but his injury was more of a developmental than production cost.
And after Ellington was lost for the year, Houston subbed in rock star slot receiver Keke Coutee.
Following Houston’s stupid, stupid, stupid win over the Colts, news came out regarding Will Fuller. He suffered a hamstring injury, not an ankle injury as the CBS broadcast crew would have you believe, during the game and was pulled out for more than precautionary reasons. He will be reevaluated later this week.

As a result, the Texans did that usual thing where they worked out other receivers. Cyril Grayson, Krishawn Hogan, Francis Owusu and Brandon Reilly all flew out to Houston to perform in front of the Texans’ brass. Grayson was the lucky one to make the practice squad to replace Jester Weah, who was placed on the practice squad-injured list. I had no idea that was a thing.

Lastly, Aaron Colvin hurt his ankle against the Colts. Nobody knows the severity other than it really hurts, Charlie. He may play again this year.
Bill O'Brien on Aaron Colvin: 'It sounds like he could possibly play again this year, not definitive on that right now.'— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) October 1, 2018
For what it’s worth, Colvin has vowed he’ll return this season.
I will. No doubt about it https://t.co/noISKaVFFw— AARON COLVIN (@AColvin_22) October 1, 2018
The Texans will get Kayvon Webster back this week. Look for him, Shareece Wright, Johnathan Joseph, and Kareem Jackson to try to cover the Cowboys’ replacement level wide receivers on Sunday night.
