  • Texans' D.J. Reader: Dealing with sprained knee
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Texans placed Reader on injured reserve Tuesday due to a sprained knee, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. It wasn't originally known why Reader was shut down for the Texans' final two contests, but Wilson's report provides clarity on the situation. Reader won't require surgery to address the injury and should be a full participant in the Texans' offseason program.

    By RotoWire Staff

    The Texans have "no concerns" that Reader will be able to replace Vince Wilfork at nose tackle, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. The Texans' 2016 fifth-round pick -- who was viewed as more of a rotational lineman coming out of Clemson -- started seven games in his rookie season and proved sufficiently capable of occupying double teams and clogging up the trenches at the professional level. While he finished the year with only 22 tackles and one sack across 16 appearances, Reader seems to be a lock to improve upon his 40-percent snap count from a season ago. Consequently, he should have more of an opportunity to rack up the counting stats in his sophomore campaign.

    Reader (shoulder) did not appear on the Texans' injury report in advance of Sunday's game against the Packers. Reader injured his shoulder last week against the Chargers. While he was limited in practice this week, his restrictions were likely a precautionary measure to ensure his availability for Week 13.
