Wide receiver Braxton Miller sat out of Monday’s walkthrough due to a hamstring injury which he suffered against the Kansas City Chiefs. Miller did not feel right after running a reverse early in the game and came out a few plays later. He met with team doctors and they iced him up on the sideline, ending his afternoon.
Miller mentioned that it was his right hamstring that was injured and didn’t think that it would keep him out too long at this point. Bill O’Brien had no real comment on Miller’s status right after the game and on Monday meeting with media, that thought did not change much.
“I don’t know that yet. It’s too early to tell. Too early to tell,” said O’Brien of Miller’s availability for Thursday.
If Miller can not get cleared for the game on Thursday, expect Jaelen Strong and Keith Mumphery to be both active, with Strong getting the majority of work in Miller's absence.
Miller has been the Texans starting slot wide receiver in 2016 and has 2 receptions for 9 yards on the season.
