Last week Kenny Stills ran behind the line of scrimmage, seeped out into the flat, caught a wide open pass, but then, tragedy struck. He pulled up after reaching the first down marker. It looked like a he took a gunshot to the buttocks. Walked to the locker room. Gone for the rest of the game.
All we’ve heard this week is that Stills is out with a hamstring injury. Now it’s been reported that he’s only day-to-day. Whether Still suits up this week or not, it sounds like it shouldn’t be an injury that drags on for weeks or even months like we saw with Keke Coutee last season.
Bill O'Brien said WR Kenny Stills is "day-to-day," but "he might be able to play Sunday.— Sarah Barshop (@sarahbarshop) October 2, 2019
Last Sunday, Seantrel Henderson, Charles Omenihu, and Zach Fulton all didn’t suit up. This week they are back to practicing sd full participants. Hopefully Fulton can start at right guard against Grady Jarrett and Omenihu can bull rush as an interior rusher on obvious passing downs.
Atlanta’s entire offensive line is banged up. Alex Mack and Jamon Brown suffered a concussion and an elbow injury, respectively, against the Titans. Both haven’t practiced this week. Right tackle Kaleb McGary was a limited participant. The Falcons’ interior blocking is already bad. It could get worse.
The Texans host the Falcons at 12 p.m. on Sunday October 6th.
UPDATE: The latest (Thursday afternoon) Texans injury report for the week has Greg Mancz as the only player who missed practice and lists Stills as limited.
