Texans' Nick Martin: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans placed Martin (ankle) on injured reserve Tuesday, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.

Martin suffered the injury in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars.

Regarded as the Texans' top lineman, Martin's absence will hurt an already suspect offense over the team's final two contests of 2017.
