HOUSTON – Houston Texans FB Jarrod Baxter injured his foot in the Dallas game and will miss the remainder of the 2003 season. The injury he suffered is a third degree lis-franc sprain in his left foot.
"This is certainly a loss," Texans head coach Dom Capers said. "Jarrod (Baxter) started for us all last year. He came back in with a great attitude and worked extremely hard during the offseason. He was showing significant progress, because last year was his first year playing fullback. I feel bad for Jarrod because he worked so hard
to get ready for the season. I'm confident that he'll do a good job of rehabbing and get himself ready to go next year, just like he did this year."
