Houston Texans Injury News: Justin Reid, Danny Amendola, Kamu Grugier-Hill Ruled Out For Thursday Night Football

At this point, Deshaun Watson may have to suit up to play defense.

We already knew tonight would mark the dawn of The Davis Mills Experience with Tyrod Taylor on the IR for at least three weeks. Unfortunately for Houston’s defense, the Texans will also be without the services of two defensive starters, as Justin Reid and Kamu Grugier-Hill are also unavailable to face the Panthers tonight thanks to injuries suffered in the loss to the Browns four days ago.

On the other side of the ball, in addition to being without Nico Collins, Mills will have to make his way tonight without the receiving safety valve that is Danny Amendola.

We’re entering Week Three, and the Texans are positively reeling on the injury front. This would be a tall task for any QB to navigate, much less a rookie making his first professional start.
