Dobbins had leave the game with an injury to his neck and according to coach Gary Kubiak, had to be sent to the hospital for further checks. The Texans also had minor issues with Brian Cushing and CB Jonathan Joseph, yet neither should be a long-term concern:
A couple things, (LB Tim)Dobbins had got a neck issue. We had to send him to the hospital for some further checks. (LB Brian) Cush(ing) is a little sore but came out of the game ok. (CB) Jonathan Joseph got sick on us in the second half, but he's ok. So that's where we're at. Dobbins will be our biggest issue.
Dobbins is in his second season with the Texans, having played for most of his seven-year career with the San Diego Chargers. Dobbins appeared in 15 games with Houston in 2011, recording 12 tackles on the season.
