During Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos, Houston Texans rookie wide receiver Tank Dell had his ankles rolled up on during a three-yard rushing touchdown run from running back Dameon Pierce.

Following the injury, Tank Dell was carted off the field. He is questionable to return.

UPADTE: It was later reported by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport that Tank Dell suffered a fractured fibula during Sunday’s game vs. the Denver Broncos, and he was placed on Injured Reserve.

It is hard to overstate how essential Tank Dell has been to this team’s recent success. Dell, 24, has appeared in 10 games this season, has caught 47 passes for 709 yards and seven touchdowns. We wish him a speedy recovery.
