Owen Daniels gets MRI for possible broken hand

T.J. Yates, Owen Daniels AP

The Texans were as healthy as they have been in a while for Saturday’s win over Cincinnati. And now they have a new injury to worry about.

John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports that Texans tight end Owen Daniels may have suffered a broken right hand and will  undergo an MRI on the injury.

The belief is that Daniels will be able to face the Ravens because he didn’t suffer a compound fracture and likely won’t need surgery. Houston needs all the offensive weapons they can get.

    The benefit of having a first round bye : Your players are getting healthier. Your opponent’s players are getting injured.

    a reciever playing with a broken hand? that doesn’t compute. i guess he may have blocking also as a tight end.

    If the Texans ever figure out that Yates throws the deep ball as well as anyone in the league( I realize what I said) and start using it more, Schaub may have a hard time coming back. Yates’ problems start when he throws underneath and is forced to throw outside the pocket. I learned that much from watching him 4 years at Carolina.

    Deep to Johnson can keep him in the NFL and the Texans in the playoff hunt. The problem is, I don’t think Kubiak really knows what he has in a long ball passer. He is exceptional.

    Ima laugh harder than i prob ever have if the ravens lose, they have flacco after all and he’s the biggest pile of garbage in the playoffs.

    @kil00986
    are you talking about the same joe flacco who has 4 playoff wins in his first three years(all on the road) which ties a record and just set the record for the most wins by a quarterback in his first four years IN THE HISTORY OF THE LEAGUE??? nice try steelers troll but i ain’t buying it!!!

    Im hoping for the best here, because Owen Daniels is a great TE. Still, his backup, Joel Dreesen, is also very good. So, if the outcome lingered on TE play, not much has changed.
