Johnathan Joseph injury: Texans cornerback to undergo MRI on Monday

Texans' cornerback Johnathan Joseph left Sunday's game against the Jaguars with a hamstring injury, and will have an MRI on Monday.


Houston Texans' cornerback Johnathan Joseph has a left hamstring injury and will undergo an MRI on Monday, according to Tania Ganguli of the Houston Chronicle.

Joseph left the Texans' 43-37 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, and was listed as questionable to return to the game. He ultimately did not re-enter, leaving his status for Thursday's game against the Detroit Lions unknown. After the game, he told Texans insider Nick Scurfield that he felt a "slight pull."

Joseph has started every game for the Texans this season, accumulating 43 tackles, two interceptions and a defensive touchdown entering Sunday's action. The seventh-year pro out of South Carolina has 20 picks and four touchdowns in his career.

Last season, Joseph was selected to his first Pro Bowl after his debut season with the Texans. Prior to that, he spent five seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Texans' Thanksgiving Day affair with Lions kicks off at 11:30 a.m. CT on CBS.
