Cecil Shorts III was hit hard in Sunday's 30-21 loss to Buffalo, but looks to be fine heading into Week 14.
"Cecil Shorts took a hit there at the end of the game," head coach Bill O'Brien said Monday. "But he's not in the concussion protocol and looks to be okay."
Bills safety Bacarri Rambo collided with Shorts as he was making a catch across the middle of the field on third-and-6 with 2:53 left in the game. Shorts walked off the field on his own was back in the game on the next drive.
"As far as injuries go, I think we're fairly healthy," O'Brien said. "Normally at this time of the year, a lot of guys are banged up. That's definitely the case with us. We've got a lot of guys that have played a lot of football for us and they're banged up."
Shorts led the team with six receptions for 91 yards, including a long of 23 yards. His reception total tied a single-game season high, while his yardage total as a personal best for 2015.
The (6-6) Texans will next host the (10-2) Patriots on Sunday Night Football. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. CT on NBC and SportsRadio 610.
