If Aaron Colvin is out, who's in?

The Texans secondary suffered another major injury, losing Aaron Colvin for what could be the remainder of the season.

"It sounds like he could possibly play again this year but I'm not definitive about that right now," head coach Bill O'Brien said Monday.

The fifth-year cornerback could join Kevin Johnson, already on the team's injured reserve list after back-to-back concussions in the preseason and in the Week 1 loss at New England. Colvin, who spent four seasons in Jacksonville before signing with the Texans, was hurt on the opening drive of overtime in the Texans 37-34 win over the Indianapolis Colts. Eight-year veteran Shareece Wright replaced Colvin, who finished with four solo stops.

"I think Shareece did some good things yesterday," O'Brien said. "He had some PBUs, a couple PBUs. Obviously, like everybody else, there's some plays that he needs to improve on, but it's good to have a veteran presence there. He's eight years in the league and good guy, real good guy. He's a little bit banged up right now and tough guy."

The Texans also hope to have Kayvon Webster make his debut for the team this week. Webster, signed on Aug. 27, has been working his way back from an Achilles injury during his 2017 season with the Los Angeles Rams.

"Kayvon should be ready to go this week," O'Brien said. "I'll know better later in the week but we should have a chance to see what Kayvon can do this week."

The Texans will host the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football in Week 5. Kickoff is set for 7:20 p.m. CT on NBC and SportsRadio 610.

The Houston Texans traveled over to Lucas Oil Stadium to defeat the Indianapolis Colts for Week 4 of the 2018 NFL season.
