Update: Pierce did come back into the game, but he wasn’t able to stay in and is now questionable to return.
Update: Pierce has gotten his ankle taped and has his helmet back on on the sideline.
Dameon Pierce just got his left ankle taped. He hopped up and put his helmet back on. Looks ready to go.— Brooks Kubena (@BKubena) December 11, 2022
The Houston Texans are taking on the Dallas Cowboys in Week 14. The Texans are down two wide receivers, but that hasn’t stopped their offense on Sunday. Against a tough Dallas defense, the 1-10-1 Texans are up 23-20 in the fourth quarter. Running back Dameon Pierce is seeing his normally high workload and has 21 carries for 76 yards and a touchdown. He took a hard shot and stayed down on the field. Pierce was able to limp off but is on the sideline.
