The end of the Houston Texans’ season is here. The Texans will play that old familiar foe, the Tennessee Titans, this week, with the squad closer to full health as they go into a week hibernation so Derrick Henry can return from the tomb to carry a Tennessee playoff run.
The Texans suffered a new set of injuries last week. Newly found starting safety Jonathan Owens dislocated his wrist in the loss to San Francisco, which means he will be out for the remainder of the season. Grayland Arnold, a Baylor undrafted free agent turned practice squad pickup, hurt his ankle and will be miss the season finale too.

The Texans will also be without starting safety Justin Reid, who came down with COVID-19. Reid will also miss this final week of action. That loss in San Francisco may have been Reid’s last game as a Texan, as he’s a free agent. After a surprising benching, the team’s performance, and his market value, Reid will probably find a new home.
This is the injury news for this week. The Texans are set to play the Titans this Sunday, January 9th, at 12 p.m. CST.
UPDATE: This seems like Justin Reid is bidding farewell to Houston.
