HOUSTON – The Texans are 0-1 and will be dealing with injuries as they prepare to play in Tennessee this weekend.
Head Coach Bill O'Brien said cornerback Kevin Johnson will miss significant time after suffering a concussion in the 27-20 loss to the Patriots. It is the second concussion Johnson has endured this season. He had just been cleared in time to play Sunday in Foxborough.
The team and training staff will be careful in the evaluation as Johnson recovers, O'Brien said.
O'Brien added he saw Johnson on the team bus after the game and today and said Johnson is feeling better.
Kareem Jackson moving over from safety to replace Johnson is an option, and that will be determined in the next 48 hours, according to O'Brien.
Right tackle Seantrel Henderson is out for the season with a broken ankle. He will undergo surgery Tuesday.
O'Brien said he is hopeful wide receiver Will Fuller will play Sunday.
O'Brien added CB Kevin Johnson will be out for quite a while after suffering another concussion. Kareem Jackson option to move back to CB but O'Brien says it's tough because @ReemBoi25 had a great game at safety. #Texans— Randy McIlvoy (@KPRC2RandyMc) September 10, 2018
