How the team’s injuries may affect the Texans in Wild Card round
Anderson and Brown are likely the most recognizable names that are questionable for Houston. Anderson played in 15 games in the regular season, registered 45 tackles, and had the second-most sacks on the team with seven. Brown played in 10 games and had 567 yards with two touchdowns.
Greenard may have the most impact if he misses. He played in 15 games this season and led the team with 12.5 sacks. Collins and Rankins are names also to watch as they combined for 78 tackles with 11 sacks. The Texans could be without their entire starting defensive line for this game and are hoping they can all suit up to try and slow down the surging Cleveland offense.
