Texans rule three starters out for Eagles game

New, comments

Updated injury report.

NFL: Tennessee Titans at Houston Texans Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Texans announced an update to their injury report ahead of their Week 16 game against the Eagles. After originally being ruled questionable to play, Houston starters Lamar Miller, Keke Coutee, and Brandon Dunn have officially been downgraded to OUT. They won’t travel to Philadelphia for Sunday’s matchup.

Miller being out means the Texans will be without their starting running back. Miller leads Houston in rushing this year with 193 attempts for 917 yards (4.8 average), four touchdowns, and zero fumbles. Miller also has 23 receptions for 163 receiving yards and one score. Alfred Blue will replace Miller in the starting lineup. Blue is only averaging 3.3 yards per carry this season.

Coutee’s absence ensures former Eagles wide receiver DeAndre Carter (missing you) will start in the slot. For his sake, it’s nice to see Carter has been able to earn a role on the Texans. For the Eagles’ sake, it’s annoying they didn’t just keep him.

Dunn is listed as the Texans’ starting nose tackle. The 6-2, 300 pounder has logged 24 tackles, four tackles for loss, and one forced fumble this year.

In addition to these three guys, Texans starting safety Mike Tyson was ruled out on Friday.

The Eagles must find a way to take advantage of a Houston squad that’s missing some key players.
