Found November 21, 2013 on Sports Injury Alert:
Rookie Tight End Ryan Griffin “Ready to Go” The Houston Texans love to run the ball. And when they do, they generally prefer to do so in two tight end packages. Their strong rushing attack of the past few years has been hampered on all fronts this season, losing starting running back Arian Foster to a herniated disc in the Lumbar region of his back, and also playing without starting tight end Owen Daniels since Week 6. In the 2013 draft, the Texans drafted tight end Ryan Griffin of Tulane to help bolster their running game, with hopes of having a solid backup behind Daniels and Garrett Graham - Things don’t always work out how you would like them to. Griffin missed last week’s loss to the Oakland Raiders, and has only accrued 3 receptions for 20-yards this season. Griffin left the Texans’ 27-24 loss to the Arizona Cardinals after suffering a concussion during a kick-off in the second half. Griffin had his first touchdown of his young NFL career in the loss.
