The Houston Texan’s Tight End Owen Daniels to Miss Time Due to Injured Fibula
The Houston Texan’s will have to find a solid replacement for the time being as Pro Bowl Tight End Owen Daniels underwent a MRI on his leg Monday. He injured the leg late in Houston’s 34-3 loss to the San Fransisco 49ers last Sunday.
Head coach Gary Kubiak talked about he injury on Monday, “Owen Daniels has the fibula that we’re getting checked out this afternoon. They’re doing an MRI on it today. He got hit on one of the last balls he caught.” Kubiak also said Daniels (Pictured on the right) was “real sore today” and that the team’s medical training staff was “checking him out.”
This could not have come at a worse time as the team is on the verge of falling to 2-5 with a loss on Sunday. The loss of Daniels puts even more pressure on struggling quarterback Matt Schaub to elevate his play as he has thrown a pick in all of the Texan’s games this season including three in the loss to San Fransisco.
The team will get their chance to get back on track this Sunday though as the St. Louis Rams come to town. Kickoff for that game is set for noon from Houston and can be seen on FOX.
