NFL injury report: Texans suffer more injuries on defense in OT win

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

The Houston Texans won another overtime game on Thursday, yet suffered three more significant injuries to add to an already lengthy list.

The Houston Texans may be 10-1 on the season after two straight overtime victories, yet injury troubles continue to threaten what has been a tremendous year so far.

The Texans needed a few fortuitous miscues by the Lions in a 34-31 overtime win on Thanksgiving Day, allowing over 500 yards of offense to Matthew Stafford and the Detroit offense. The defense, already without several starters due to injury, lost two more during the game that will require MRIs on Friday.

Inside linebacker Bradie James suffered a hamstring injury, while outside linebacker Brooks Reed suffered a groin injury with both needing further tests to determine the severity of the injuries. With Reed and James hurt, the Texans would be down four linebackers with Brian Cushing out for the season and Tim Dobbins still out with a shoulder injury.

Right tackle Derek Newton will have an MRI on his injured knee as well, while tight end Garrett Graham suffered a shoulder injury.

The Texans have 10 days to recuperate, taking on the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, Dec. 2 at noon CT.
