Braxton Miller Ruled Out For The Houston Texans

Braxton Miller has been ruled out for Thursday Night's game against the New England Patriots.

The Houston Texans will be without Braxton Miller on Thursday Night against the New England Patriots. Miller was ruled out by the team due to a right hamstring injury that he suffered early in the Kansas City Chiefs game last Sunday. He was pulled out of that game and immediately iced by team trainers, ending his day. 

Miller sat out all week of practice and, with the short week, it made it nearly impossible for him to play. Miller has been the team’s starting slot wide receiver and has two receptions on the season for nine yards. 

With Miller now out, expect Jaelen Strong to get majority to the snaps at the slot wide receiver and Keith Mumphery to be active for the game. 

Brian Cushing and Duane Brown were also ruled out for the game.
