The Houston Texans have to watch the health of tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz who sustained a sprained MCL on his right knee on a field goal attempt on Sunday. Fiedorowicz had a solid game, finally giving the Texans a threat from the tight end position, hauling in 4 receptions for 48 yards and a touchdown. Fiedorowicz showed a part of his game Sunday that he has not shown since arriving to the Texans. Reports have him missing some time with his knee issue moving forward but that is still a fluid situation.
The issue with Fiedorowicz’ injury is that he is the only inline tight end (Y-tight end) on the roster and is used as a primary option in blocking for the running game. The Texans will have to figure out their tight end situation, with rookie Stephen Anderson missing the past game with a hamstring injury, which left the offense with one healthy option at tight end, Ryan Griffin. There could be some roster shuffling if they are only with one tight end heading to next Sunday. All of this speculation has yet to work itself out.
The Texans are heading to Minnesota to face a talented Vikings team that is 4-0, which will be another test for a team that has struggled to perform in high pressure games.
