The Houston Texans have been bitten hard by the injury bug all season long and now there is a potential new injury that could hurt the Texans going forward. Tight end Owen Daniels is having his right hand x-rayed for precautionary reasons because the fear is that his hand is broken, this is according to the Houston Chronicle's Jerome Solomon.
The play where Daniels was injured was a first half catch which was challenged by the Bengals. The play was an 8-yard catch by Daniels and the Bengals challenged that the ball was fumbled, but the play stood as a catch for Daniels. Against the Bengals Daniels caught two receptions for 29 total yards.
Daniels was the leading receiver for the Texans this year with 54 receptions for 677 yards and scored three touchdowns. This would be a big loss for the Texans if he happened to miss next weeks AFC Divisional game against the Baltimore Ravens.
