Texans Vs. Broncos Injury Update: LB Tim Dobbins Misses Practice

Houston Texans linebacker and special teams captain Tim Dobbins sat out practice on Wednesday as he nurses a hamstring injury, according to a report by Nick Scurfield of the team's website.

Dobbins' status for Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos will likely come down to a game-time decision, head coach Gary Kubiak said. He suffered the injury in Houston's 27-7 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 2.

One of the Texans' better special teams contributors, Dobbins is tied for the team lead with three tackles in kick and punt coverage this season. Additionally, he was named Houston's special teams player of the game in Week 2 for his work against the Jaguars.

Although Dobbins has started strong, the Texans' special teams unit as a whole ranks 28th in the league in punt return yards allowed on average, 23rd in kickoff return average and tied for 21st in kickoff return average allowed.
