It's the first step to passing the league's concussion protocol, and if he illustrates no concussion symptoms Anderson should be medically cleared to play against the Patriots on Sunday. With Ryan Griffin (concussion) also practicing fully, the Texans' could potentially have their top two tight ends back for Week 3.
With C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) on injured reserve, Anderson should have a role on offense once he returns, though the extent of that role largely will depend on Ryan Griffin's recovery from his own concussion. If both Griffin and Anderson are available for Week 3, the latter likely will get more snaps and targets.
Anderson will join C.J. Fiedorowicz (IR, concussion) and Ryan Griffin (concussion) on the inactive list Week 2, and for as long as each is working his way through the concussion protocol. The Texans only have one healthy tight end (undrafted rookie Evan Baylis) on the 53-man roster, so the passing attack may take a back seat for the time being, especially with Deshaun Watson under center.
Anderson (concussion) is doubtful to play in Thursday's game against the Bengals, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
All three Houston tight ends are in the concussion protocol and are unlikely to play due to it being a short week. As a result, the Texans will likely have to sign additional players before Thursday's contest. Tight end Evan Baylis is currently on their practice squad and could be in line for a spot start.
Anderson suffered a concussion during Houston's 29-7 loss to Jacksonville in Week 1, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. He caught two of five targets for 14 yards before departing.
All thee of Houston's tight ends left Sunday's game due to a concussion, which makes for an interesting week. The Texans return in four days to play the Bengals on the road Thursday. They have Evan Baylis on the practice squad but may need to make more than one move to field an adequate number of tight ends.
