With the Texans off on a bye this week, this development shouldn’t put any NFL games this weekend in jeopardy. It remains to be seen what, if any, effect it will have on the Texans’ Week 9 tilt against the Jaguars. Whether he’s showing symptoms or not, all the best to Max Scharping as he works toward recovery.
