Scarlett suffered a hamstring injury during Sunday's win over the Colts and has been placed on IR, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Scarlett appeared in five games throughout the first six weeks of the 2016 season for the Texans, recording just five total tackles. His absence won't have much of an impact for the defense, while the team was able to sign defensive tackle Brandon Dunn to fill the open roster spot.
