A look at the Houston Texans Thursday injury report.

The Houston Texans are coming off a loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars at home, and are looking to bounce back against the Denver Broncos, who have been on fire.

Here is a look a look at the Texans Thursday injury report:


  • Defensive Tackle Sheldon Rankins (Elbow)
  • Tight End Dalton Schultz (Hamstring)


  • Wide Receiver Noah Brown (Knee)
  • Wide Receiver Tank Dell (Calf)


  • Right Tackle George Fant (Hip)
  • Linebacker Jake Hansen (Hamstring / Hand)
  • Quarterback C.J Stroud (Thigh)
  • Left Tackle Laremy Tunsil (Knee)
  • Safety Jimmie Ward (Hamstring)

The Houston Texans are mostly healthy entering a huge AFC matchup against the Broncos at home. Houston may be without two starters on both sides of the ball in tight end Dalton Schultz and defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins.

The good news is that the Texans are likely to get back wide receiver Noah Brown, who was breaking out in a big way before he injured his knee. Rookie wide receiver Tank Dell, who missed practice on Wednesday due to a calf injury, returned to practice today, and is on track to play this Sunday.

If Houston wants to make a serious playoff push, the game this weekend is a must-win.
