Texans guard Mike Brisiel played through a broken leg Sunday


The Texans are stuck replacing yet another starting player.

As first reported by Anna-Megan Raley of Sports 610 Radio, guard Mike Brisiel broke his leg during Sunday’s win over the Bengals. The injury occurred early in the game, but Brisiel finished out the contest. (Wow.)

The team won’t place Brisiel on injured reserve. He underwent surgery Monday morning and could return in time for the playoffs. Antoine Caldwell will start in his place.

It’s been a day of celebration in Houston, in large part because of the efforts of guys like Brisiel.
