Mario Williams Injury Update: Texans' Defender Heads To Locker Room With Finger Injury

First Andre Johnson, now Mario Williams? The defensive leader for the Houston Texans, Mario Williams left the game versus the Oakland Raiders in the first quarter with an undisclosed finger injury. It appears that while trying to sack Oakland quarterback Jason Campbell, Williams hit his finger on Campbell's helmet.

Courtesy of John McCain, Texans beat writer for the Houston Chronicle:

Mario Williams went to the dressing room. It looked like he hit his finger on a helmet when he got his sack.

Looking down the Houston Texans depth chart, rookie linebackers Brooks Reid from Arizona and Bryan Braman from West Texas A&M would be most likely to step in for Mario Williams, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft.

Houston currently leads the Oakland Raiders 14-6 midway through the second quarter.
