The Houston Texans are taking on the New York Jets in Week 14. New York tackled quarterback C.J. Stroud, and his head hit the turf hard and stayed on the ground. He was eventually able to leave the field and went right into the blue medical tent. Backup QB Davis Mills is in the game.

Stroud had struggled against New York’s defense prior to the injury. He was 10-of-23 for only 91 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions. Stroud lost his top pass-catcher Nico Collins to a calf injury early in the game. That left the QB without Collins, Tank Dell or tight end Dalton Schultz, and it showed with their offensive output or lack thereof.
