The injuries are mounting up across the NFL and the Houston Texans will be without starting tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz who has been ruled out by the team with a concussion. Fiedorowicz suffered the concussion against the Indianapolis Colts and did not clear the concussion protocol for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Fiedorowicz has had a solid season for the Texans catching 48 balls (75 targets) for 505 yards and 3 touchdowns while averaging 10.5 yards a catch.
The loss of Fiedorowicz will change things offensively especially in the run game on how well he blocks on the edge. Both Ryan Griffin and Stephen Anderson will move up the depth chart to be the main tight ends during the game. Expect Griffin to be the starter for Sunday and get bulk of the snaps.
