Texans Vs. Vikings: Rashad Butler Leaves Game Injured

Both the Vikings and Texans are playing mostly backups in their final preseason match up against each other, but that doesn't mean that injuries are welcome with the regular season right around the corner. Though the Texans have the 14-3 lead over Minnesota approaching half time, they have lost the services of LT Rashad Butler because of an elbow injury, as announced by the Texans' Twitter account during the game:

No further word has been released on Butler's status since he left the game. The 29-year-old backup tackle has played in 34 games for the Texans over the past three seasons with them.
