According to the Houston Texans, The #Texans have placed ILB Tim Dobbins on the Reserve/Injured list with an ankle injury — Houston Texans (@HoustonTexans) January 4, 2013 The #Texans have signed rookie ILB Cameron Collins from the practice squad to the active roster — Houston Texans (@HoustonTexans) January 4, 2013     This comes a big blow to an already depleted inside linebacker position that has seen three put on the injured reserve this season. Tim Dobbins was placed on the injured reserve with an ankle injury that will keep him out for Saturday’s playoff game versus the Cincinnati Bengals. That is the second linebacker put on the injured reserve this week with Darryl Sharpton being placed on it with an injured hip. Cameron Collins Dobbins was playing well this season but was hampered the entire season with injuries, and was relegated to passing situations late in the season. He filled in early for an injured Brian Cushing, but injuries slowed him down. With the Dobbins injury Bradie James and Barrett Ruud are slated to be the starting inside linebackers on Saturday. Recently signed Mister Alexander and promoted Cameron Collins will be the back up linebackers for the Texans.

Bengals lose to Texans 19-13, extend futility

Couldn't stop Arian Foster. Couldn't make that one big play when it was right at their fingertips. And, in an ending so sickeningly familiar, the Bengals couldn't break one of the NFL's longest streaks of playoff futility. Plenty of blame to go around for this one. Andy Dalton overthrew an open A.J. Green in the end zone in the closing minutes, and the Houston Texans...
