The Houston Texans have been dodging one bullet after another in regards to injuries this summer. On Wednesday, another player bit the dust, as linebacker Keyaron Fox, who was acquired by the team on July 26, went down with a knee injury.
It was announced on Thursday that the 6-3, 235-pound linebacker would be done for the year.
Fox, a former third-round pick by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2004, made 10 tackles and played in 13 games for the Washington Redskins last season. If he had made the Texans’ final roster, it was expected that he would presume the same position he had previously with the Pittsburgh Steelers as a key contributor on special teams.
Now Fox has been replaced with another veteran linebacker who also weighs 235 pounds.
