Texans cornerback Johnathan Joseph remained in the locker room at the start of the second half undergoing X-rays on his right shoulder. The Texans list him as questionable to return.

Joseph was injured with 24 seconds left in the first half when he went for a big hit on Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert after a 22-yard gain. He remained on the ground but eventually walked off under his own power and headed to the locker room ahead of his teammates.

Joseph had three tackles before departing.

He missed three games last season with cracked ribs and a bruised lung.

UPDATE 10:29 P.M.: The Texans announced Joseph will not return.

  1. It seemed like he used his arm too much and twapped it around the opponent. Had he been positioned a little more to his left, he would’ve gotten his body behind his shoulder and might’ve been ok. It’s got to be tough doing such small things in the heat of the moment like that.

  2. Pathetic how the announcers keep trying to act like this is some kind of big game. Both teams suck and are going nowhere. One dude said earlier “The stakes couldn’t be higher” This league is in trouble

  3. Bengals owner mike brown’s cheapness allowed Houston to acquire Johnathan Joseph in 2011 when he was a TOP 3 cornerback in the NFL.

    Yes… j.j. watt is overrated.

  4. If i were the Texans owner I would pull the plug on Bill O’Brien quicker than Bill O’Brien pulls the plug on QBs. How many times is this mindless play caller going to get stuffed running up the guy on 3rd and 1? Does he really not have any other play for that situation?

  5. Maybe I’m mistaken but I thought when you launch yourself…as in you leave your feet to hit a guy who just caught a ball, that it’s a penalty. At least it’s a penalty by their definition in the sissified product they call football nowadays. However, they threw a flag when Williams tackled Hopkins 5 yards downfield after a catch. Granted they picked it up but the inconsistency is why this league is such a joke anymore.

    How crazy would it be for O’Brien to get fired at halftime?

  7. Wow … NFL has gone down the tubes fast. Both of these teams are terrible seriously who would pay to watch this garbage. Throw in the Jets, Colts, Browns and you have a lot of bad games.
